As a grassroots charity with over 4 million members in over 80 countries, Mothers’ Union works alongside local communities through its worldwide membership, projects and programmes.
By understanding the needs of individuals and communities at a grassroots level, we are able to build effective policies which can have a real and lasting positive impact according to the specific needs of different communities across the world.
We then advocate and campaign to see these changes become reality. With a powerful voice to call for change, Mothers’ Union advocates and campaigns at a local, national and international level. We do this by:
- Informing, resourcing, and mobilising our members, supporters, and the public who are passionate about positively impacting issues of social justice at all levels.
- Engaging, informing, and communicating with governments and decision makers on issues that matter to communities across the world.
- Collaborating with other key charities and organisations to help bring a united voice for change.
We support women, men, children and young people, and families in all their forms to eliminate gender-based violence and abuse, to promote equality, to help build healthy relationships, and to support women in the key role they have in building communities and bringing peace and reconciliation.
