The Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia) works with organisations and communities to provide a clean birthing environment for women in developing countries in order to reduce the incidence of infant and maternal mortality.
We respect peoples' dignity and values and work according to principles of basic human rights. We raise awareness, provide support and resources and act as a catalyst for the creation of birth attendant training programmes and community development projects.
A world in which all women have access to safe birthing practices, regardless of race, religion, culture, history or socio-economic status.
"Every woman has the right to a clean and safe childbirth"
