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!
