Producing transformative benefits to women’s health, agency, and income through increased access to family planning.

CURRENT OR PREDICTED IMPACT:

  • We anticipate providing more than 1 million women with high-quality contraceptive counseling within five years, providing significant benefits to health, agency, and income.

  • We are aiming to have a level of impact competitive with GiveWell top charities.

SIGNIFICANT UPDATES: 

  • MHI completed a scoping trip to Ghana in October 2022, where we engaged with a variety of local NGOs, potential partner organizations, and healthcare providers. This trip will underpin our program design as we move towards a proof of concept, ensuring our work provides maximum value to the people we are serving.

ACHIEVEMENTS: 

  • Received more than $30,000 in additional funding from individuals outside of the CE network since launching. 

  • Awarded an Honorable Mention for our submission on the potential impact of family planning interventions to the Open Philanthropy Cause Exploration Prize. 

  • Met with 18 different stakeholder organizations and individuals in Ghana, building a network of ongoing partnerships.
