I have been a volunteer at CSI since 2014. In Uganda, we have done amazing work to make a difference for women, children, and the youth. My favorite programs are free cervical cancer screening and the Safina program for orphans and vulnerable children. I was able to travel to Dar es Salaam and be part of #CSI5Anniversary on April 6th. I feel appreciated and valued at CSI, and was very happy to get my certificate from Dr. Jakaya Kikwete.

CSI's I Can Read program for young children in Baltimore is a great addition to ensure every child has a great preK start regardless of where they live. No child left behind. By working with children living in shelters to strengthen their reading skills, CSI is preparing them to succeed beyond preK. #CSIBaltimore #ICanRead #ICanWrite #EarlyChildhoodEducation #Baltimore

In 2013 when CSI was established, we envisioned a growing organization--saving lives of mothers and children, empowering youth and impacting communities. When the CSI Board reviews the work accomplished since 2013, it is humbling because CSI is headed in the right direction and growing to reach the unreached. CSI is in three countries - Tanzania, Uganda and Nigeria. This work wouldn't be possible without the generous contributions from individuals and funding from Rotary International. Together = Progress for #Humanity. CSI Founders.

I work with CSI Uganda and truly enjoy my role in the organization as Program Coordinator. Helping mothers when we do free cervical cancer screenings and when we give away childbirth kits. I mostly enjoy working with girls and encouraging them to go to school and learn. In Uganda, many girls don't get the opportunity to learn, so when I see myself talking to girls about menstruation and helping them stay in school, I feel great.

Hi...I am proudly to be among of the male who stands to speak about maternal,new born and adolescents health issues in a community.

CSI Tanzania team have been helping people through programs like school program,girl talk girl power and now a team prepares some safe motherhood workshops in Tanzania which helps mothers to know what are the important issues during pregnancy, in delivery and after delivery.

CSI organized a workshop of safe motherhood on 2nd April 2016 at Ukonga Ilala, Dar es salaam and one hundred pregnant women invited and during workshop they get skills and knowledge of best nutritional requirements and understanding of risks signs during pregnancy period.

We reach to unreached and we will still help a community for their well-being.

This cause is near and dear to my heartm I believe that nearly every African family is affected by this issue, if not directly then through a distant relative. I am just touched to be part of this cause, even by a small contribution. It might be in a small way but lives are trully being touchef through CSI. I encourage for those that a not yet involved to take the time and see what CSI has done thus far. You might think your contribution is small, but a little does go a long way. Thanks CSI.
