US Honours Adepeju Jaiyeoba for Her Impact on Reducing Mortality During Childbirth

-

- Advertisment -

The United States embassy has honoured Adepeju Jaiyeoba, a fellow of Mandela Washington Fellowship, for her contribution in reducing women’s mortality rate during childbirth.

She used her social enterprise to help women and also deployed the knowledge she garnered from her fellowship in the US to improve women’s health.

In 2013, she won the Leadership Impact Award which was founded by Mother’s Delivery Kit, an enterprise that is into the production of birth kits to midwives and hospitals, as she was the first to win such award in the country.

Jaiyeoba went into the supply of birth kits after her friend died during childbirth. The kits are quite affordable and they contain sterile supplies that engender basic hygiene.

Apart from the provision of birth kits, the organisation also provides seminars for hospital attendants and community health workers on childbirth practices.

A year after, Jaiyeoba attended a six-week Leadership Institute at the University of Texas at Austin during the debut year of the Mandela Washington Fellowship.

She used her knowledge gathered from the US fellowship to improve her social enterprise in Nigeria and it showed in how Mother’s Delivery Kit experienced exponential growth.

Before her fellowship, the enterprise had only been able to sell 30 kits but afterwards, the awardee was able to sell over half a million kits across the federation.

The awardee is very much committed to keeping women alive and helping them achieve all their live goals. It should be noted that the fellowship has been helping young Africans since its inception in 2014 through leadership training and networking.
