BEING A MOM IS TOUGH, BUT IN SOME PLACES IT'S TOUGHER

A first breath, first meal, first word, first steps — mom is there. Mothers tend to serve as their child’s primary caregiver and protector, yet many face far greater daily challenges than we can imagine.

From their child’s prenatal stages through young adulthood, some women struggle with:

  • preventing childhood malnutrition and slowed mental and physical development
  • accessing proper healthcare to prevent and treat illnesses
  • accessing educational opportunities for their child
  • preventing domestic violence
  • ending early marriage and childbearing traditions
  • preventing child labor
 

ChildFund programs and community partners in the Americas, Africa, and Asia work together with families to help educate and empower women to be the best versions of themselves they can be.

At Mom Matters, the virtual celebration of motherhood, you’ll learn more about these strong women, their challenges, and the programs and community responses that have made an impact on their lives and the lives of their children.

Thank you for your support.
