Empowered Life Birth Collective's Partnership with Crosslink Development International's Women's Health Project

ELBC is partnering with Crosslink Development International, a non-profit organization that works in the country of Kyrgyzstan with a focus on community development. CDI has a Women's Community Health Education project that focuses on health training for women with an emphasis on pregnancy health, nutrition, birth education, labor support, and other areas of general women's health. A portion of every childbirth education course student’s fees go towards supporting CDI’s Women’s Health Project.
