My name is John from Zambia and I am a social entrepreneur.
I have commercial qualifications in Business Administration and Law with a professional work experience that includes working in the renewable energy sector and as a program development specialist (SRHR and HIV/ AIDs). I am passionate about public health particularly safe motherhood. I want to spend the majority of my time helping Zambia achieve key indicators under United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) especially 3 (3.1 and 3.2), 17 (partnerships to achieve goals) and any other SDGs in between including financing the health workforce.
What if ONE Mama’s Moments Maternity Kit could create behavioural change for the pregnant mother by encouraging early antenatal booking, increase male partner involvement in antenatal and post natal services, ensure a livelihood opportunity for the community health volunteer, ensure a flow of health information to the pregnant woman and provide for a safe delivery?
My business is simple;- Using the Mama’s Moments Brand, I aspire to offer convenience to pregnant mothers. Unlike the competition, I will have the right products for them and really want to share in their joyous experience. The Mama's Moments brand is a home-grown comprehensive health initiative formulated to tackle the challenges of maternal mortality and morbidity in Zambia. It is a brand promoted by Maurice Gregory Agencies Limited- a family-run start-up social business dedicated to developing innovative products for the mother and child health market. I started by developing subsidized maternity kits for the pregnant mothers, then re/training and economically empowering community health volunteers through entrepreneurship so that they have a livelihood by selling the maternity kit to the pregnant mothers to health promotions- road shows and displays in market places promoting early antenatal, male involvement and facility delivery and the 5 Golden Rules of COVID Prevention!
As with the first loan, which raised money to assemble my subsidized Mama's Moments Maternity Kit- a bag which contains sterile suppliers for the pregnant mother- a bag that will help Zambia in reducing maternal and child morbidity and improving the uptake of maternal and child health services, I want to assemble some Kits for another health facility in Kanyama Compound and empower a Community Health Volunteer so that they can have a livelihood opportunity. In the process, pregnant mothers will access my cost effective clean Kit.
