Why is investing in mothers an imperative? Because in doing so, we have a chance at breaking the cycle of poverty. Of creating a transformative ripple effect that extends beyond individual households. Of shifting our world to a more caring one. Backing mothers and other unpaid caregivers is not an expense. It is an investment in people, their wellbeing and the future.
