Dear our kind supporters,

 

Today is the last day of GobalGiving’s International Women’s Week campaign! Don’t delay—Your donation up to $50 will be matched by 50%! 

Thanks to your support, three nonprofits, Kizuna Mail Project, Nobel, and Madre Bonita, will be participating in WIT’s Board Fellow Program launching this summer, which will connect these organizations with private sector leaders in order to cultivate long-term cross-sector collaborations and build their organizational capacity. 

Please read on to learn about one of the participating nonprofits, Madre Bonita! 

Around 14.3% of new mothers experience postpartum depression, while 46.9% of women leave their work after childbirth. In response to these and other issues related to childbirth, Madre Bonita conducts pre/postnatal care classes, including exercise, self-care, and support for new mothers who may feel isolated from society. Madre Bonita also trains instructors who can conduct pre/postnatal care programs and conducts research related to issues of postnatal wellbeing in order to improve their offerings. Through the Board Fellow Program, Madre Bonita hopes to engage in discussion and collaborations with a variety of stakeholders in order to create a society where postnatal care is available for everyone, allowing mothers to realize their full potential.

With gratitude,

Mio, Mako, Kento, and WIT Team

Come one, come all: #InternationalWomensDay is only 5 days away! 

This year, there’s plenty to celebrate with 50% matching on all donations up to $50 during @GlobalGiving’s #InternationalWomensWeek. That’s right: from March 8-12, your generosity will go even further when you support WIT Board Fellow Program with direct-service Japanese nonprofits in maternal health

Through the Board Fellow Program, we would like to encourage cross-sector collaboration between nonprofits working on issues of maternal wellbeing — Kizuna Mail Project, Nobel, and Madre Bonita in Japan, and private companies and professionals from diverse backgrounds. In doing so, we are committed to contributing to deepening, scaling, and sustaining the impact of direct-service nonprofits. 

Rather than simply providing a volunteer opportunity for corporate leaders, the Board Fellow Program will connect nonprofits with corporations to build their organizational capacity. In this way, the program will promote long-term collaborations, such as having corporate employees serve on nonprofit boards, a practice that is still rare in Japan.

Aki Ko, Founder of Nobel, one of the participating nonprofits, said, “We look forward to scaling our impact to empower mothers in Japan through robust discussion with business leader participants during the Board Fellow Program.”

 

Be sure to tell your family and friends—this is one match you don’t want to miss!

 

Thank you always for your support!
Mio and WIT Team
