Reaching the Unreached with Health Services & Information 
Dear CSI Friends, Partners, and Donors:

CSI continues to align reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health efforts to contribute to the achievement of national and global goals but most importantly to impact the lives of the people served. We have seen the impact of educating and empowering the girl child to get an education; we have seen how engaging men in the conversations has improved better access to health services and information for women and children; we have seen the value of CSI midwifery professional development in improving quality and respectful maternity care in health facilities. 

The data reveals CSI's positive impact in saving and changing lives and we believe that is important to help partners and donors recognize CSI is
a strong global health allyWe thank you for remaining connected to CSI and your interest in the work we do in underserved communities especially for pregnant women and adolescent girls.

In the spirit of being thankful and giving back to help the
poor and less fortunate, please support one of the CSI
causes today and on #GivingTuesday.

Warm regards, 
CSI Founders
