Dear Friends of Breastfeeding, 

We are pleased to inform you of WABA's Community Support for Breastfeeding Seedgrant. The Seedgrant aims to establish or strengthen community support worldwide for breastfeeding protection, promotion and support. It focuses on educating and sensitising communities towards the importance of breastfeeding and encouraging them to be more supportive of breastfeeding families or even directly involved in supporting mothers. 

The Community Support for Breastfeeding Seedgrant project should target and enhance existing support measures, groups or activities, or initiate new ones.  This project seeks a broad concept of mother support such that we support diverse types of community-based support initiatives that can help to bring about an enabling environment for mothers to initiate and sustain exclusive breastfeeding and practice extended breastfeeding after 6 months, with adequate complementary feeding. You may want to refer to the GIMS (Global Initiative for Mother Support) Statement.

The completed application form must reach WABA latest, by 31 May 2007

Please share the news of this new Seedgrant Programme with your networks. We look forward to hearing from you. 

With warm regards, 

Julianna Lim
