Mother2Mother - network for vulnerable mothers

Summary

Children need their mothers in order to grow healthy and to gain values that they need for their whole Life. Our Mo2Mo project provides a global network for mamas to share, chat with mentors and peers and learn about family care and wellbeing. Through the network and localised campaigns, we advocate on mother's role in the society by breaking barriers to support and reducing stigma towards vulnerable mothers and their children who are socially excluded or judged by the society.

Challenge

Portugal, according to several studies comparing EU countries family care and support mechanisms, has one of the weakest support system for mothers in Europe . There is judgement, social exclusion and stigma that vulnerable mothers with low-income, single status, survivors of rape, domestic violence or trafficking are facing on daily bases reflecting on how they and their children are perceived and treated in the society. There is a great need to shift these perceptions and attitudes.

Solution

Our solution is to create a circle of giving and receiving applying for physical- and emotional support for vulnerable mothers while actively advocating policy level changes to see& hear& support vulnerable mothers in Portugal, aiming for permanent positive changes in the society and for these participating mothers and their children. One element is to establish a global Mo2Mo network allowing interaction, peer support and learning with other mothers.

Long-Term Impact

Mothers are the secret ingredient for healthy and happy future! Mothers as primary caretakers for children are the ones that needs to be supported and educated in order for them to raise the next generation of decision makers to look after our planet, flora and fauna. By investing mothers now, is the best investment we can consider for future of any society or the planet. With small investment on empowerment, mothers will have the means to raise their children with love and compassion needed.
