1. Facility support; In this component, we deploy skilled volunteers to local health facilities to provide direct service such as immunization, outpatient consultation and conducting of ANC services. This is aimed at reducing manpower gaps that exist in the project area. In the past 3 months since this pilot started, our volunteers have committed over 300 hours of volunteer time to 3 facilities serving Bolari, Doruwa and Gabukka communities in Gombe. We have immunized and dewormed over 3000 children and currently monitoring over 200 pregnant women keeping appointment with the above mentioned clinics.
