<<First Name>>,
We are using our resources to improve children’s health.

In order to more directly reverse malnutrition and anemia in children 5 years and younger and to increase the health of whole communities in years to come, we have started a program that focuses on educating and encouraging community members to replace unhealthy habits with good, nutritional habits already existing in their community. This methodology is called positive deviance. Changes will not come easily or quickly, and will not happen without careful studyrelationship building, and repetition. But improving children’s nutrition and their chance at a healthier future is worth it.

An Update from La Consulta

Our AMOS nutritionist and Rural Health team are working closely with people in La Consulta to train four volunteer mothers in positive deviance methods so they can be change-makers and help the families who have signed up to participate in the program. This is where relationship building is most important. These four women are being trained themselves in good sanitation and hygiene methods, good cooking habits, and breastfeeding education first in order to be equipped to teach the material and to follow up with each participating mother in her home.

AMOS on the Web: July Trainings

This July we had a fun, informative, and new experience at AMOS as our mentors, volunteer mothers, and new health promoters all came to our offices for a week long training. The three groups held joint and separate trainings that were specialized to their different areas of work. The mentors helped AMOS staff teach many of the sessions for the other two groups and shared tips and advice from their years of experience with the other two groups, especially about how to do home visits with pregnant women.

The volunteer mothers learned and reviewed female anatomy, signs of danger during the birthing process, and learned the basics of how to manage an emergency birth in their community if they had to. The newer health promoters focused on developing their skills in tracking the progress of pregnant women in their community and providing them with the information they need to make healthy decisions for themselves and their babies. And each evening everyone participated in crafts and games to relax after their long days of training. Check out some of the training highlights in pictures!
