UNESCO - At the start of the global pandemic in 2020, eight NGO-UNESCO partners decided to collaborate with their grass roots associations in solidarity actions to share the voices of the most vulnerable and to understand the evolving situations on the ground.
Partners included: the International Federation of Business and Professional Women, International Catholic Cooperation Center for UNESCO, the Association Montessori Internationale, World Organization for Early Childhood Education and Care, International Fellowship of Reconciliation,International Movement ATD Fourth World, and the South Asia Foundation.
The global online exchanges on the Facebook solidarity platform enabled local associations to connect rapidly, sharing reliable information and best practices amongst themselves as well as with international NGOs, including MMM.

MMM’s contribution is based on the belief that the indispensable reconstruction of “living together” will be unachievable without strengthening civil society partnerships, particularly with local NGOs. Only then can people’s specific needs be addressed and met, allowing for the opportunity to work towards building a more peaceful and just world.

Now more than ever it is essential to listen to mothers and support them
