Guam – The Guam Early Learning Council and project Tinituhon has launched project Nene bags by donating 250 Nene bags to newborns and their moms at the Guam Memorial Hospital.
Nene is the Chamorro word for baby thus the project aims to provide these baby bags to all GMH mothers when they leave the hospital after giving birth. The bags include early childhood informational pamphlets, a Nene directory, and other helpful items that both the mother and child can use.
“So every baby born on Buam will have access to this wealth of information and then who knows the new president of the united states could come from here but we really could look at what are the positive things that could happen to children if we start early. So with the support of the Guam early learning council and the first lady and all of us here I think these are really good gifts to give during this season of giving,” said Project Tinituhon director Elaine B. Eclavea.
The hope is that these bags will provide new mothers with the information they need to ensure the proper development of their newborn child.
