WALC has funded a grant for one of our members to travel to Uganda and work with Josephine, our ILCA partner.  Josephine has been working diligently to address the great unmet need for breastfeeding training in her part of the world.  There are no lactation consultants (hopefully, she will become the first), and health workers receive no training in breastfeeding.  Josephine has been training health workers and peer counselors, doing classes for mothers, breastfeeding consults, and has started a Breastfeeding Resource Center – all pretty much on her own.  Now we have the opportunity to send one of our members to work with her for a short time!   Timing of the visit is flexible, depending on your schedule. Please contact Becky Krumwiede for more information.
