Susan, a 25-year-old who lives in rural West Pokot, Kenya, has a daily routine.
She wakes up at 6am every day to get water from the river. She prepares breakfast for her family. She gets her five children ready for school. Then she sets off for work, caring for her animals and plowing the earth on her farm.
On her one day off a week, she takes her family to church. She loves spending time with her family and community.
Susan, and women like her, have always played an important role in the local culture. However, they’ve often had challenges accessing information and resources about their health, including the importance of healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies, as well as the health of their children. But that’s changing.
“Now my community sees that a mother’s health is important, too,” Susan says.
