We cannot expect women to give birth until they die from it. We cannot afford that in our humanity.
I have been following Dr. Hengstberger’s commitment for a very long time and I am delighted to see that great things have developed from the original idea. May you all continue to put so much energy into these ideas and their implementation!
All the best,

Enabling access to family planning not only increases individual’s autonomy, it is also the answer to many of the economic, social, demographic, and environmental issues of our time.
It is important to note culture, tradition, and religion when undertaking development work, as these factors determine individual’s lives and responses to new information. Aktion Regen works with local Rain Workers to share information that is accessible, suitable to cultural contexts and understandable.
Maria has always told us “grab your future”. I am proud to be a Rain Worker and to spread the knowledge on family planning. It is for our future!
