HHI teams with HealthPhone to provide educational content to mothers of children age zero to three in India. A portion of HHI’s mother training will soon be available to mothers in India via video on mobile phones. This is great news for millions of new mothers and their babies in some of the most rural and underdeveloped areas of the world.  HealthPhone’s technology allows us to provide life-changing content to millions mothers and in that way better the lives of millions of babies we would otherwise not be able to reach.

HHI Goes to Namibia - Recently a group of mothers in Namibia gathered with their babies to participate in HHI's first ever training in their country, all thanks to a young woman who was determined to make it happen.


HHI has done more than ever this year, but we cannot do our important work without you.  Please, we need your investment to ensure a healthy future for the world's most vulnerable children.  Give today.
