In Europe, it is a summer holiday season and many families are heading for a break when children are not in schools or nurseries.
But what if you are a single mother, what if your income level is low and you are to work without holidays? What if you are a mother who is struggling with your physical or mental health? What if you are abused? Can you imagine the extra load these mothers have to carry while raising their children and while planning their activiteis for holiday season.
As always, Romi's Way wants to step up for these mothers and provide them an hour or two of time to rest without worrying about their children. We are planning activities for school-aged children where they can be safely outdoors under adult supervision and take part on guided activities, while mamas can have some valued rest time at home.
Your kind support is greatly valued by our team and volunteers, becasuse of people like you, our work is possible.
We are delighted to welcome Vera as a part-time Mother2Mother network coordinator in February. Vera is working hard to keep the network vibrant and full of relevant information while engaging with the members. Currently, the network has nearly 70 members, and we are hoping to increase the figure this year to over 100.
If you wish to become a member, or know anyone who is interested to find well-researched information about motherhood, child care, wellbeing, mental and physical health of mothers and to share experiences with other mothers, please join us and become a member - it is free and easy to do. You can find more information here: https://www.mother2mother.online/
Thank you again for supporting our Mother2Mother project! We are excited to share, that after a few months of break (as we took the decision to support Ukrainian orphans and deciated our personnel and funding resources for that), we are now delighted to report that 2023 will be BIG for our mother-to-mother network. We have secured funds for a part-time coordinator to look after the network, its members and the contecxt for 12-months from 1st February 2023 onwards. With a dedicated person in place, we are aiming to engage with our mama-community effectively, aiming to have at least 200 member-profiles (currently 64) on the network, and ensure the network has a rich source of information to share (reading materials & courses - all free for the members), and facilitiating opportunities for the mamas to chat for peer support.
Watch this space for 2023 - please pass the word to any mother who would like to connect with other mothers, either as a one who has 'seen it all' and wants to help others, or as someone who is overwhelmed by challenges mamahood& our demanding world can create.
For now, we thank you sincerely for making this possible, and look forward to building the network forward from here.
