The first pilot in Bunda had shown us that the concept of JamboMama! is understood and appreciated. It is in demand. Today SAHFA has a small, dedicated and capable Tanzanian technical development team. An IT business developer focused on medico-social communication technology; a Tanzanian programmer who took our application to a higher level of functionalities and ease of use; a senior midwife with long experience in the promotion of rural maternal health as well as in the management of HIV/AIDS. The Tanzanian team coordinates continued development on African soil, not just in Tanzania.
We have recently received a 10,000 Euro donation from the Denibam Foundation. It is their second big contribution to our work and comes spot-on to finance our second pilot in Tanzania, again in the Mwanza region, this time in Sumve district. In 2021 SAHFA paid for the training of a nurse-midwife who previously worked with JamboMama! in Bunda. When he lost his father, he had to drop out from nursing college and earn a living. He finishes nursing college in 2022 and will take on the introduction of JamboMama! in the maternity ward of Sumve hospital and also as a training tool at the nursing-midwifery college linked to this hospital.
