Lets End Fistula Initative
OUR VISION STATEMENT
‘To be an impactful voice in ending maternal mortality and morbidity”.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
“To establish a fistula survivors’ network that contributes in ending fistula in Kenya and rebuild the lives of women and girls who have suffered childbirth injury through community-based interventions.
What is Obstetric Fistula?
Find Out What Causes It and How You Can Help Make Motherhood Safe.
PATIENT -TREATMENT LINKAGE
Finding & connecting fistula patients with fistula treatment opportunities and facilitating their treatment in line with UN’s SDG Three of ensuring Good Health and Wellbeing.
Promote social reintegration for fistula survivors through solidarity groups facilitated by trained Regional Representatives.
This is in line with the UN SDG 10 of reduced inequalities.
Provide supportive structures and equip fistula survivors with skills and knowledge that enables them to engage in Income Generating Activities (IGAs) at both individual and group level, as a tool of economic empowerment. In this, LEFI will be helping Kenya realize the first SDG of No Poverty, the fifth of ensuring Gender equality and the eighth of decent work and economic growth.
Contribute to ending fistula in Kenya by empowering fistula survivors to serve as advocates and champions for reproductive health, safe childbirth, and fistula treatment.
This resonates with the UN’s third SDG of ensuring good health and Wellbeing.
YOUNG CHAMPIONS FISTULA CLUB
LEFI builds the capacity of the adolescent girls in high school through Young Champions Fistula Clubs to serve as peer educators in addressing adolescence’s pregnancy and other harmful cultures & traditions such as FGM and early forced marriage that are major contributors to reproductive health challenges including maternal mortality and morbidity.
This will enhance establishment of teaching institutions in line with SDG Four (quality education) and the 16th SDG (Peace, justice, and strong institutions)
ADOLESCENT MOTHERS PROGRAMME
LEFI provides psychosocial support and counselling to the pregnant adolescent girls/mothers as they go through the shame of carrying pregnancy and the trauma of going through delivery. For continued healing, LEFI creates a support system for this population by establishing safe platforms for them to share their experiences / stories in order for them to successfully heal and pursue their academic dreams.
LEFI’s engagement with the adolescent mothers remains a critical aspect of its Prevention Work as LEFI also strives to turn scars into stars.
LEFI provides structured support system mainly through Solidarity Groups for Social Reinterpretation, Economic Empowerment and the Safe Motherhood Component. We currently work with Eighteen Solidarity Groups in Kenya to achieve our mission.
let’s make a difference together.
