After 16 years, SafeHands for Mothers is from today called SafeHands.
SafeHands puts information into the hands of women and girls to make choices over their own bodies and lives. We are a multimedia communications organisation that delivers sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) messages to the last mile.
When our Founder Director Nancy Durrell McKenna started the organisation in 2003, her mission was to ensure every pregnancy and childbirth was safe. But to do that means addressing broader issues like contraception, bodily autonomy, and social power. Women and girls must have access to SRHR information and services to make full free and informed choices over their bodies and lives without fear or discrimination.
Our work started with maternal health but now extends beyond that and so must our name. That is why are now simply “SafeHands.”
