Marg is a Midwife & Vocational Educator with a Certificate in Vocational Training and Comprehensive Family Planning and Sexual Health.
“My passion is to prevent the pregnancy/poverty cycle that seems to never end. As a midwife my first love is to see healthy mothers receive healthy babies, but in Uganda the poor midwifery training combined with the numbers actually giving birth make it impossible to impact – even if I worked the remainder of my life in training 24/7.
The answer is in a shift of thinking amongst men and women from ‘Many babies makes us look strong’ to ‘Children by choice not chance.’
This is slow work, but urgent as this generation begins their reproductive years. We address gender balance, values, pregnancy, abortion, contraception, decision making skills, healthy relationships, assertiveness and anger management amongst many other issues facing vulnerable youth from deep fractured and hurting backgrounds.”
