Many mothers are struggling to support their children and families, particularly due to the increased need for them to stay home during the COVID19 pandemic, limiting income generating opportunities, as well as opportunities to receive physical and mental support. Single-headed households with minimum income, stigmatised mothers from LBGT community as well as mothers suffering from domestic violence and those have children born out of rape or young mothers are amongst the most vulnerable ones. In addition to them, mothers who are victims of sex trafficking or human trafficking are suffering with unimaginable trauma while simultaneously doing the most difficult and most important job in the world – being mothers. We want to make sure they all receive the support, empowerment and opportunities to actively participate in the community without prejudice of stigma and this is what our Mother2Mother project is aiming for
This project is funded by Airbnb Community Foundation and Global Giving until end of year 2021.
