My name is Klaudia and I´m Mexican. I currently work for RENAPRED, a very unique Mexican organization that promotes a culture of prevention with respect to maternal risks and situations that can cause disabilities for a newborn. My main task is to reproduce RENAPRED’s course of action in Latin America. Most of our efforts are focused on real time training delivered to thousands of young people; nevertheless, we still need to reach millions of future mothers, focusing on indigenous and disabled people. These efforts need funds, volunteers and a great knowledge on the use of web 2.0. How to come up with a good strategy that includes these three elements?

I started doing quite well on social networking; however my friends and followers are not enough. We need an army of volunteers. Imagine how they can influence and convince women to follow simple measures such as folic acid intake. I started this journal as a way to attract educated, empowered, committed or motivated women. So, I hope you can help me to raise awareness on disability prevention.

I feel very honored to be here.
cheers from Mexico
