Founded in 2010, WorldMomsBlog.com is a collaborative international website which writes from over 20 countries on the topics of motherhood, culture, human rights and social good.
Our Mission Statement:
- Connecting mothers around the world through their stories.
- Promoting understanding and tolerance of other cultures, religions and nationalities.
- Encouraging discussion of important motherhood, parenting, cultural and human rights topics.
- Creating a support system for mothers via the web site.
- Helping to promote our writers.
- To strive to create opportunities for social good to make the lives of mothers and children better around the planet.
As busy mothers we often find ourselves without the time to be jet-setting around the planet. So, we invite you to come travel the world with us, through our global writers. Visit our Contributors’ Page for a current list of the countries we report from. Our writers include a stay-at-home mom in India, an international journalist in London, an international human rights lawyer in the USA, an English professor in the United Arab Emirates, an oncology nurse in Israel, and a humanitarian consultant in Kenya, to name a few!
Our contributors also publish our World Voice column, which combines our articles on human rights and social good.
Our global contributors have been awarded journalistic fellowships to Brazil, Ethiopia, Uganda and the United States of America to report or speak on social good topics such as global health, maternal and newborn health and more. World Moms Blog launched an 8-month social media campaign called “#Moms4MDGs” in 2013 which helped raised awareness of the United Nation’s goals to help end poverty, the Millennium Development Goals. Our twitter parties under the hashtag created millions of impressions about the UN’s important mission to create a better world. We are proud of this!
We have also attended Social Media & Global Influencer Fellowships by the UN Foundation in New York City, attended Shot@Life Vaccination Advocacy Summits and the ONE Campaign’s Women and Girls’ Summit in Washington, DC.
In 2014, we were invited to the World Bank to cover their Civil Society Meetings, where people from around the world came to play a role in reshaping World Bank and International Monetary Fund policy to end poverty.
When we are not reporting on world social good events, we are mostly writing about what it is like to be a mother where, we, over 60 #WorldMoms contributors live in the world. Our contributors are at the heart of our global community! They run our Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Instagram feeds. We are currently an all-volunteer organization, which is an amazing effort for our mothers who chip in to find the time to keep us running!
So, don’t stop here — we cordially invite you to travel our pages with us! No matter where in the world you log in from, the #WorldMoms are here. We hope you enjoy these daily excursions without having to pack your bags!
