Our Approach 


For 15 years, SafeHands for Mothers has leveraged the power of photography and film as a catalyst for change in under-served communities around the world. Working with global, national, and local partners, we convey critical issues through hard-hitting films that help to empower, educate, and inspire audiences. The films are powerful tools that initiate discussion in communities and inspire viewers to create social and policy change for sexual and reproductive health and rights. 
Our work enables:

  • Survival. By shedding light on practises that impede sexual and reproductive health and rights our films help to end maternal mortality.
  • Empowerment. By educating audiences to make full, free and informed choices, our films help people to gain autonomy over their bodies and lives.
  • Transformation. By stimulating conversation and action, our films drive transformative change for women, men and young people.
