Celebrating a milestone

Promise and her family
Promise and her family

This year, mothers2mothers (m2m) is celebrating the milestone of reaching over 11 million clients since we started in 2001. While this is a celebration of the immense scale of m2m's impact over the years, we wanted to take this opportunity to tell the story of just one Mentor Mother.

Why? Because each Mentor Mother is responsible for reaching dozens--even hundreds--of clients. By zeroing in on one woman's impact, we're actually telling a story that gets to the very heart of m2m's peer-based model that has successfully reached those 11 million+ clients. 

Promise James, the Community Mentor Mother in Malawi whose story resides at the core of this milestone celebration, is a true Wonder Woman. She decided to become a Mentor Mother to fulfill her dream of supporting other women and families in her community, by overcoming the challenges that she knows all too well as a woman living with HIV.

When Promise was pregnant with her third child, she was aware of her status, and she feared she would pass the virus to her baby. She managed to find the courage to access and stay on mnedication that kept both mother and child healthy.

It's her story--of empowerment in the form of education and employment, and of perseverance to rise above her own life-threatening illness to help create health and hope for other families in her community--that makes her the quintessential m2m Wonder Woman.
