Our Mission

To decrease the number of women dying from pregnancy related complications in the resource limited setting by increasing knowledge of and access to health services and contraception and by empowering each woman to make choices for her own health and safety during all stages of childbearing.

What We Do

Mama Maisha focuses on training local women as advocates for reproductive health. These Maternal Health Advocates (MHA) provide education, support and empowerment to women.

About Us

Dr. Reta Graham and Dr. Jeff Graham, in affiliation with local and regional non-governmental services, founded Mama Maisha, the first Safe Motherhood Intervention Project in the Mara region of Tanzania.

Mama Maisha works at the village level, providing essential prenatal care and delivery services, as well as education and resources to empower women to make wise decision regarding family planning, healthy pregnancies, and safe delivery for every child.

Mama Maisha is working to develop relationships with local and regional government and health facilities to advocate for education, training and retention of providers at a variety of levels, improving standards and addressing the unmet need for reproductive and maternal health care.
