Mothers at the heart of change for a culture of peace. Showcasing examples at family, community, national and international levels.

Together with CARE International Maroc, MMM organised an international conference on the role of mothers for peace – #Mothers4Peace – on 3-4 May in Casablanca, Morocco.

Why mothers for peace?

Mothers are the first educators for peace. Mothers can build bridges and have the power to mobilise. They play a crucial role within families and communities. Mothers are still untapped resources that must be involved in decision making at all levels: within the family, the community, at national and international levels.

  • HRH Esmeralda de Belgique, Author of “Women Peace Nobel Price”
  • Gary Barker, Brazil, Founder and Director of Promundo
  • Rima Salah, Ph.D., Professor at Yale Child Study Centre, Former Deputy Executive Director of UNICEF. Co-editor of  “Pathways to Peace”
