Our goal
Reduction of maternal mortality
The Challenge

Mothers without care in pregnancy have sick babies

without proper care during pregnancy, the mother gets weak and the child is born preterm with complications. Mothers can't afford nutritious food and treatment so some conditions may not be treated and cause problems for mother and child.

Our Solution

Saving more lives with the available resources

Babies and mothers will be saved by your donation sent to Ekam. Ekam provides trained nurses, arranges free physician services, subsidized hospitalization costs and connects Government funds and private donors like you with the child in need.

Since 2009, Ekam has saved 12,000 children and reached 1 million lives through medical care. Ekam's work at grass roots level in villages caused early referral and easy access to treatment- Infant mortality rate has decreased from 21 to 16 per 1,000 births

Ekam educates mothers how to take good food and care for their newborn at home. Ekam provides ready medical care so most child births happen in hospitals.

Your Impact

Successful reduction of child mortality

Infant mortality rate (IMR) has decreased from 21 to 16 per 1,000 liver births where Ekam operates in India, in the state of Tamil Nadu. We hope to spread this throughout the country and simulate the successful model elsewhere. IMR is 42 in India, compared to Tamil Nadu's current rate of 16.Currently Ekam's success has been replicated in a total of 8 states in India, touching a million lives, covering 1200 villages, through 3000 doctors. Ekam has supported medical treatment for 12,000 children.
