In 2014, TCTF supported “Helping Mothers Together” – a training-the-trainer project to improve maternal health and reduce infant mortality rates in the Kampong Chhnang province of Cambodia initiated by Social Capital Venture Development (SCVD). As part of the project, SCVD partnered KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) in providing medical training and medical kits, funded by TCTF, to maternity hospitals.

TCTF also supported SCVD in their development of a water bicycle pump system that runs without the need for electricity or a generator. The pump system will be implemented in over 500 schools enabling the children to have access to clean and safe drinking water.

The foundation met the core team of trained midwives who were empowered to guide other midwives in the community during a refresher training session on 27 October 2015.
