International Conference #Mothers4Peace – 3-4 May, Casablanca (Morocco)

03.05.18

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, under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, 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.
