Solar Bracelets Protect Kenya's Nomadic Mothers and Babies

In a bid to improve services for nomadic women, about 50 solar-powered bracelets with Global Positioning System trackers have been given to expectant mothers as they move in search of water and grazing land for their livestock. Dahabo Adi Galgallo, the founder of the project, was born in Marsabit to nomadic parents who moved around so much, home deliveries were the norm, with some mothers dying from bleeding during birth and even losing their babies to malnutrition.
