Young Champions of Maternal Health Continue to Progress & Lead Change

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 making the most out of the few short months left in the Young Champion program, different strategies for leading and managing a citizen sector organization, the ever-present challenge of ensuring that the most marginalized populations are not forgotten, and beginning the process of applying learnings from the placement with an Ashoka Fellow to one’s own ideas and work. All this and much more! 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!
