We installed the first Baby Changing Station! Have a look

They say a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step!  We are so happy to finally start this journey of transforming the lives of our children and caregivers by  increasing access of of baby changing stations in public spaces in Nairobi Kenya. Our very first baby changing station was installed in the baby center in Quarry Market in Gikomba, Nairobi Kenya. Our baby changing stations easy to operate, comfortable, easy to clean, and provide ultimate safety for the baby during a diaper change. We have also provided a diaper disposal bin that will ensure that diapers are safely disposed of. The future is bright and we look forward to increasing the access of baby changing stations not only in Nairobi, but across the country.  While this is a grain of sand in the ocean, we are grateful to spearhead this initiative and can’t wait to scale and make more impact.
 
Before the installation of our baby changing station, mothers were changing their babies’ diapers on cold floors or improvised carton boxes. These are mothers who have to bring their babies to work daily because they can not afford the high cost of child care. While the baby changing station provide comfort and dignity of children during the diaper change, mothers still have to use carton boxes to put their babies to sleep during the day. This has caused persistent flus among children increasing the cost of money spent in Hospitals. We believe that every child deserves dignity. We will continue to improve the baby center to be comfortable, child friendly and to promote play and learning for the children in the coming weeks. You are welcome to support us in this great initiative that will not only improve the lives of children but also enable mothers to contribute to economic growth of this county.
