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.
My students have worked with Mothering Across Continents for several years raising money to build schools in South Sudan. Their "hands on" approach with students has helped them to see beyond their scope and to feel empathy towards the needs of others. This is a wonderful organization that creates leaders and builds awareness so that students learn to take action.
I consulted for Mothering Across Continents, specifically on their “Adopting Dreams. Raising Tomorrow’s Leaders" initiative. The scope and scale of their work could be overwhelming for many- but what others see as a barrier they see as an opportunity. They directly impact and educate the youth on global issues as a means of bring awareness into the classroom which of course travels back to the family room. And this interconnected action allows for mobility and energy to combine and create art inspired projects that do more than fill a requirement, they transform individuals locally and positively impact cultures globally.
