Siphilile Maternal and Child Health is an independent non-governmental organisation in Eswatini with the aim to improve maternal and child health and nutrition through the implementation of a community-based Mentor Mother program. The program builds on the Philani Mentor Mother model, first developed in Cape Town, South Africa. Siphilile has been active in Eswatini since 2012.
Siphilile identifies and recruits mothers to be mentors and supporters for pregnant women and other mothers in their own living area. The Mentor Mothers are given a one-month in-house training and continuous supervision and support from the Siphilile Management Team. This community-based peer support model empowers women, and society as a whole, to make fact-based decision and to take action for a better and healthier life.
