WHY: Runway Moms for a Cause {RMFC} is a fashion fundraising event.  Labeled a visual fashion statement for Global Goodwill, RMFC is a runway show for philanthropists to take a stance on an often overlooked issue, and lend a helping hand towards a solution.

CAUSE: Childbirth Survival International {CSI} is a Maryland-based 501(c)(3) non-profit humanitarian organization that works to improve and strengthen quality, access, and delivery of health services and information for pregnant women, newborns, children, and adolescents/youth in marginalized communities. CSI in collaboration with partners is reaching the unreached and making a difference. CSI is currently working in Tanzania and Uganda, with the vision to be a global contributor in reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health improvement.

CSI was founded by Stella Mpanda, a veteran certified nurse midwife and Tausi Suedi, a global public health professional. Together they bring rich experiences, talent, skill, wealth of knowledge, and double-passion to address reproductive, maternal, newborn, child health challenges  in marginalized communities contributing to global, national, and community  strategies.  Today, the CSI team has grown from these two powerful women to a diverse, skilled, and dynamic team who shares the passion and upholds CSI values, mission, and vision.

CSI’s mission is to facilitate the provision of respectful, quality maternal and reproductive health services to women of child bearing age; improve services for newborns and children 0-5 years at health facilities and at their homes (home-based midwifery care); and increase access to reproductive health services for youth.  Learn more about them at Childbirth Survival International.
