Mother’s Day

May 9, 2021

Let’s celebrate the mothers who everyday do their best to provide for themselves, their families and their communities!


Have you ever given a gift that gives twice: first touching the heart of your mom or the mother figure in your life, and then benefiting women and girls who are facing adversity? When you give in honour of a mother’s love, not only will you be making your mom proud, you’ll also empower women and girls to become agents for change in their communities.

It’s been over a year since COVID-19 has impacted our lives in so many ways from the way we work to the way we interact with family and friends. We have all felt the hardship that this pandemic has brought on us, from lost jobs, to lockdowns, to over 3 million people losing their lives.

Many of the women in the countries where we work in are frontline workers, mothers and caretakers who work to support their families. Now it’s our turn to pay it forward. This Mother’s Day, we can empower these women and girls as they face the threat of food insecurity, gender-based violence on top of the devastating consequences of the pandemic. Celebrate your mom or mother figure in your life by making an in-honour or in-memory gift for that special someone.


Our work is even more urgent in the face of COVID-19, as years of progress are threatening to come undone. That is why we need your help! By donating today, your gift will provide much-needed support to local partners in sub-Saharan Africa, as they respond to the COVID-19. Your gift today will allow us to adopt programs and implement new approaches to ensure we address the immediate and long-term impacts of the pandemic on vulnerable women and girls. Your contribution will ensure that there is support for women and girls who have been among the most severely impacted by gender-based violence. Help us help them by making a gift today in honour of your mom or mother figure in your life.
