About Us


Kabar, Casamance

Help us furnish and supply the new Kassoumay Birth House with comfortable birthing beds, stools, and tables with warm lights for newborn exams, scales, oxygen, medical supplies and all that is necessary for safe deliveries!

Thanks for all of our donors, midwifery exchange students, and builder Ibrahima Coly, we have been able to realize the dream of the Kassoumay Birth House in Kabar! Small donations can go a long way, so please help in any way you can!

‘A Book for Midwives’ for Francophone countries

Simply written and heavily illustrated, this book is the most appropriate and useful text for training direct entry midwives in skills and knowledge at a rural level, but it is not yet available in French. African Birth Collective has funded a translation through the donations of individual people who seek to support education and safe birth in Africa. Now we are seeking funds to publish and distribute copies throughout Senegal. Each book is only $5!

Please contribute and each copy will be donated to a young midwife as an important educational resource and reference tool that can save lives!
