Mimidae will empower young obstetric fistula survivors that have been ostracized from their villages. We will serve as a center for healing and self-empowerment. Mimidae's innovative model will provide living quarters for a period of three years during which time they will gain both classroom and hands-on midwife training, gain administrative/managerial skills, learn about family planning methods and the dangers of early childbearing. Following their train, each woman will be able to administer health care services and education in areas with high obstetric fistula rates.
