Why 10.000 mother

Mothers and young children are among the most vulnerable groups during disaster. They can sustain longerterm hardship if suppport is not catered to their physical and social wellbeing.

 

A 7.9 magnitude earth quake struck the central part of Nepal on the 25th of April 2015.

Approximately 8 Million people have been affected by the great earthquake.  Of them 150,000 women are expected to be pregnant and need immediate need while more than 40, 000 women and girls could become witness to violence based on gender.

What we do now shouldn’t just help rebuild Nepal, but allow it to become a better place - safer for women and one co-created by an active engagement of women as agents of change.

Mothers and young children are among the most vulnerable groups during disaster. They can sustain longerterm hardship if suppport is not catered to their physical and social wellbeing.

Despite its devastating form, natural disasters present themselves as an equal opportunity to change situations in the lives of people. It can become a time to revitalise relations of people within families and society.

10.000 mothers will engage immediate and close women family members as support agents aiming to revert the traditional role of women as receivers. This process will not only provide relief but also create a more dignified space for women in society.
