Checking In: Young Champions Share Their Latest Developments

Posted on

The Young Champions of Maternal Health have continued to contribute blogs on their progress implementing projects with Ashoka Fellows around the world. This month, the Young Champions share their insights into topics as diverse as striving toward sustainability and the continual pursuit of resources to continue innovating, the challenge (and excitement!) of implementing new maternal health programs in new geographic areas, some of the Young Champions’ goals for the new year and the remainder of their placements, and the importance of being part of the Young Champion community. All this and much more – including some exciting developments in more than one of our Young Champions’ own ideas, projects, and organizations! You can click through to their individual blog posts below. They will continue to blog about their experiences every month, and you can learn more about Ashoka, the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth, the individual Young Champions, and the program here. Enjoy!
