About Me

My name is Muzalema Mwanza, I am the last born in a family of four and I am married with one baby boy. I am a civil engineer by profession and my late father always encouraged me to chase my dreams.

As a new mother, I learned of the difficult requirements that rural Zambian clinics impose on expectant mothers to provide their own tools for giving birth such as a scalpel blade, sterile gloves, and birthing mat for delivery of their babies. I managed to buy the things they require and gave birth to a beautiful boy in 2016, after which i realized that for many months I had a hard time finding these products all in one place so I established Safe Motherhood Alliance, a social enterprise to package and distribute sterile materials for childbirth for pregnant women in low-income communitiesand rural areas.

My Business

We provide Baby Delivery Kits to pregnant women in low-income communities and rural areas to ensure and improve safe births by developing a simple, low-cost, disposable delivery kit for pregnant women that will be used during childbirth because everyday in Zambia, hundreds of mothers and babies die at childbirth because mothers have to provide their own birthing materials. But with the baby delivery kits, mothers can rest easy knowing their newborns will be free from using unsterilized,-materials. Click here for more ways to support us, https://goto.gg/52112

Loan Proposal

With the loan we will be able to continue our work of packing baby delivery kits for pregnant women ensuring that they are safe and have positive health outcomes.

Income Source

Health is important to many families and because of this we are able to work with different community members providing lifesaving tools.

    Repayments started strong, then shrank for several months before several large payments finished the loan off. This is an important, amazing and inspiring project that I am honoured to help with.
