The European Union adopts legislative and non-legislative initiatives that have a direct impact on the lives of European citizens. The EU also plays an important role at international level, notably for the protection of Human Rights and is an important partner of the United Nations and the biggest donor for development aid.
In this context, the MMM European Delegation focuses on supporting and empowering mothers and highlighting how their contribution at social and economic levels matters for Europe’s future development.
The Delegation works to influence European policies and legislation to bring about positive changes in the lives of mothers, which will, in turn, have a positive impact on their children, family and the whole of society. MMM aims to support mothers and help them develop their independence.
At the European Parliament, MMM works with the following Commissions:
Our work is carried out in a transparent manner in accordance with the Transparency Register established by the European Parliament and the European Commission.
MMM collaborates on a regular basis with many European NGOs, notably with Age Platform Europe, COFACE, Eurochild, Eurocarers, the European Women’s Lobby, Maternal Health Europe, etc.
Since December 2016, MMM is a member of the Social Platform. It is the largest network of European civil society organizations active in the social sector. Its mission is to promote policies that contribute to social progress for all, based on human rights.
