As the local council leader for my community in Seguku, Uganda, I am extremely grateful for your work with orphans. I was pleased to attend and watch how your team run CSI Safina program. The children were happy and engaged in the learning. Please keep up the work.

All the way from USA-River in Arusha, we love CSI! Thanks for giving girls sanitary pads so they can go to school and stay in school. Education is important. Girl talk, girl power.

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.

It is wonderful and inspiring to see an organization like CSI with committed staff and volunteers helping to strengthen the services we provide to pregnant women and newborns. Verily, the childbirth kits help the mothers but also my staff because many times we don't have sufficent medical supplies in-stock. Thank you CSI.

As a young man, championing causes for women and girls in my community by working with CSI, it has been an eye-opening experience for me. I hope to continue working with CSI and bring change to help women and girls.

CSI thank you very much for coming to our community and to help women with free cervical cancer screening. You bring services for women in our community but we ask you come again or make visits frequent because women really need services. May God bless you all. VHT Uganda.

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.

CSI Team has showed they really care about the people. I have seen them give out the mama kits and they stop at every woman's bedside in labor&delivery to check on them, and make sure nurses know how to use the kits. God bless you CSI.
