Mission: The mission of Mothering Across Continents is “Adopting Dreams. Raising Tomorrow’s Leaders.” We pursue this mission by providing a platform for volunteer catalysts – particularly women – to receive consulting, coaching and mentoring to develop dream projects. Our focus is developing and delivering innovative education projects serving orphans, at-risk, and vulnerable children in the most impoverished, under-served locations. We’re committed to guiding these projects to become models for change.
Results: Mothering Across Continents has launched and supported projects in 10 countries. We have served over 6,000 children, engaged 400+ volunteers, educated 10,000 U.S. students about global issues and raised 1.5 million since inception for our projects. We developed the first merit school program for Mwiko Primary School –an impoverished school in Rwanda which serves children and families effected by genocide. We built the first permanent primary school in Unity State South Sudan where only 1 in 10 have access to education and 90% of adults can’t read. We introduced the first technology-focused vocational and lifestyle training program for young women in rural northern Haiti. We developed the first sustainable early-childhood development center in a community of Kwa-Zula Natal in South Africa.
Programs: We have launched and supported projects in South Africa, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Haiti, Hong Kong, Thailand, Liberia, Bolivia, and the U.S.

A Lost Boy of Sudan named James Lubo Mijak and I had a dream to build a school in South Sudan back in 2009. We were floundering until we met Mothering Across Continents. Since then, with their tireless direction and support, we've raised more than $300,000 and have completed a school in one of the most remote places in the world. We simply could not have done it without them. And, there is so much more work to do and Mothering is committed to seeing it through with us.

After 3 years of working closely on this project, Raising South Sudan, I was asked to join the board of Mothering. I gladly accepted.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would staff up! More dreamers need this kind of support and coaching.
