Why Mothers?

We believe in the power of mothers to make the world a better place. We advocate for their recognition and support as changemakers. We amplify their voice at the highest level: the EU, UNESCO and the UN

Advancing their skills and recognizing their responsibility as the first educators of their children are key levers for change.

What we do:
Advocacy and grass roots mobilisation
with 3 main focus areas - all underpinned by education

Mothers & the Economy

They often face discriminations linked to motherhood and poverty…

But without mothers,
what economy?

Mothers & Health

They are at the heart of Early Childhood Development and family health issues…

But maternal health, a global health indicator, still remains a challenge

Mothers & Peace

They are the first victims of violence and armed conflicts…

But mothers also have the power to build bridges, mobilise and educate to the values of peace.
