Mothers for Mothers

Background

Mothers for Mothers came about as an initiative of women joining hands to share together the experience of being a mother. It is about creating a network of professional (urban) mothers to support mothers in the rural areas to fulfill the needs of their children – for example food, clothing, health, education, and protection. Also, it focuses on empowering mothers to be agents of change for enhancing the quality of life of their children, themselves, and society as a whole.

Objective

To provide financial assistance to economically disadvantaged mothers to fulfill the basic needs of children and to share the knowledge and expertise of urban mothers to help support rural mothers.
