Testimony of Minata Sangare, Matron Tiebala

"I welcome this initiative because there was little action to strengthen our capabilities. As we work in remote villages, we have little means and are often powerless to deal with the problems faced by women. Thanks to the training I received, I can teach what I have learned to the other matrons of maternity hospitals.
