Together with a group of NGOs in official relationship with UNESCO, Make Mothers Matter has initiated a global solidarity network in order to create synergies between their grassroots associations around the world.
The idea is to have these grassroots organisations collaborating and sharing initiatives, including the ones from UNESCO, to implement appropriate and effective actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Several Facebook groups have thus been created in Africa (Ivory Coast, Central Africa, English-speaking Africa, Madagascar), South Asia, Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe and Lebanon.
Feedback from the field provides a global chronological and thematic view of the evolution of the crisis as close as possible to the populations. The objective is threefold:
Their actions in a wide variety of fields and their different sensitivities have enabled NGOs to create a constructive global solidarity with the support of UNESCO, in respect of their common values. A report will be submitted to UNESCO in order to contribute to the reflections carried out with a view to finding new and innovative responses to the global crisis and to strengthen the NGO-UNESCO partnership.
