Our Changemaker Scheme will be open for applications from 1st Jan 2020 until 31st March 2020

Changemaker bursaries can provide financial assistance to those looking to progress in the field of global maternal health. Our ambition is to ensure that we have access now, and in the future, to the skills and talent needed to ensure that no mother dies giving birth, regardless of where they live in the world.

Changemaker application’s will be assessed by an Ammalife panel at the final stage during April 2020.
