an awful number,
an absurd fact,
an exciting solution.

The awful number is 16,394.

That’s how many children will die around the world…today.
Tomorrow. Every day.

The absurd fact.
They will die from diseases we already have cures for.
Hard to believe, isn’t it? Can’t something be done?

Yes.

An exciting solution.
Our current project is The Grace Babies Curriculum: a unique online course that is custom-made to certify healthcare workers in developing countries to save babies’ lives.

What babies need most.
The first 28 days of life are critical. Keep them healthy, and their chances for a long life skyrocket. In poor and remote locations, however, skilled care is rare.

How it can happen.
Health workers in poverty-ridden locations need professional, accurate, culturally appropriate education that equips them for these first 28 days. The Grace Babies Curriculum (GBC) gives doctors and nurses a proven, practical set of procedures that have saved lives in the developing world for the past 14 years.

Why GBC is unique.
421977_3304245135634_1710435895_nGrace Babies Curriculum is video-based, but students won’t see gleaming western hospitals or professional actors. Instead, they’ll see effective methods taught by someone who’s been there….and, watch them working in hospitals just like their own.

At last, a safety net.
baby and momThese babies and mothers get no monthly checkups, have no insurance and no support. The curriculum gives them a chance, because it goes directly to the workers on the ground, where they are, and it’s available anywhere, on a laptop or even a smart phone.

A number, a fact, and a solution. Today, and every day, thousands of children die from diseases we already have cures for. Because of the Grace Babies Curriculum, some of these babies…won’t.
