This woman in Mosebo village, 43 kilometers from Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, holds her nine-day-old baby and quickly quiets him by breastfeeding him in her home.

Save the Children is working diligently with the Ethiopian Federal Government to properly train health extension workers and provide continuing education for the workers to help save the lives of vulnerable newborns. Through its widely-recognized, global program, Saving Newborn Lives, Save the Children has worked in low- and middle-income countries since 2000 to help newborns survive past the first month of life.
