My name is Dr. Mary Davenport and I am the founder and director of Magnificat Maternal Health Program, an affiliate of MLI. I am a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist and past president of the American College of Pro-Life Obstetricians (APPLOG). With my guidance, MMHP was able to open and certify the Grimard Midwifery School in Idah, Nigeria – which just graduated its first class of 25 midwives. MMHP also helped build and equip the Ankpa Birth Clinic, which is now providing life-saving obstetrical care in a remote region of the Idah diocese.
My name is Nitish John and I am a computer software engineer and owner of Gramboo Communications in the Silicon Valley. I completed the installation of a computer classroom at Grimard Midwifery school and set up an electronic midwifery library. I also host MLI’s and MMHP’s web-site and provide additional IT support to our projects.
