Pebbles of Hope is a United States-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to helping premature babies around the world survive and thrive. By leveraging the power of media, technology and community to provide education and training to parents, birth attendants, and community health workers, we are working to give premature babies born in underserved areas an increased chance at survival and the opportunity to lead a healthy life.
The fact is that prematurity is dangerous for babies. Prematurity is the leading cause of newborn death, even in the US. But 75% of these deaths are preventable with simple, cost-effective interventions, and many more babies born too soon can avoid a lifetime of challenges with the proper care, nutrition and support for their development.
Through media outreach, mentoring and training, Pebbles of Hope is raising awareness about these simple interventions. We develop and fund programs to educate parents and other caregivers in underserved areas on how to promote the health and wellbeing of preterm babies before and after they come home.
