Based on our successful program in Tibet, we have formed an INGO in Nepal, to work on our Pregnancy and Village Outreach Training (PAVOT) program in the Baglung and Dolpa Districts in Western Nepal. Soon the 250,000 people living in rural communities scattered along the foothills of the Himalayas will have the resources and training to help women survive childbirth and give their babies a chance to live.

The One Heart World-Wide funded Basic Emergency Obstetric Care (BEOC) Center in Dunai, Dolpa. The midwives are very excited to have light in the delivery room, since Martin Walker-Watson installed the simple solar lights in late May. Now they can truly monitor the well-being of the mothers and newborns during and after delivery. Well done ATT for providing the funds for the solar lights!
