About Us

Our Partners Get the Facts Resources

Our mission is to help families through raising awareness and creating calls to action for our community of over 140,000 people and 30+ partners.

Every mother in the world wants the same thing: a healthy pregnancy, a safe birth, and a baby who will thrive. For millions of moms, basic healthcare and services are out of reach.

We know there are moms around the world who can’t afford to send their kids to school, give them nutritious meals, or life-saving vaccinations—but we also know that mothers feel a strong bond with one another, and they want to help each other rise up.

This sense of ‘global motherhood’ is why we started the Global Moms Challenge. We teach Global Moms about issues impacting families, host an annual event called Moms +SocialGood, and raise support for families in the Global Moms Relay.

What we do:

We connect moms in the U.S. with their peers around the world by sharing our partners’ stories and information with our community in an accessible, inspirational, and most importantly, actionable way. Our community supports the United Nations’ Every Woman Every Child Initiative to help women and children around the world lead healthy lives.

How we do it:

Our partners work tirelessly every day to increase access to life-saving medicine, vital nutrition, education, and opportunities to empower women and lift up communities.

We’ll connect you with the stories and lives of the people our partners are helping, we’ll make their work easy to understand, and we’ll make it easy for you to take action to support them.
