MOMS Goals and Dreams

MOMS' goal is to improve the health of women and babies through education and service, with an emphasis on those with the greatest needs and fewest resources.   

MOMS’ big dream is of a society where people rejoice at wanted pregnancies and assume that they will get competent and respectful care, including support with breastfeeding, nutrition, family planning, and other concerns.  For this dream to be sustainable, communities must change to ensure women and kids get their needs met well.

So, we do three things:

  • Prepare women to be problem-solvers for their whole community, especially for the pregnant women.

  • Train women in the skills and knowledge they need to make changes in the community, educate others, and support local pregnant women, especially with prenatal and postnatal care.

  • Advocate for effective maternity care to all women.

This is the road to a village where we have worked many times.
Our hope is that people who are this remote have excellent care.  

We also have some little dreams.  These little dreams combine to reach our big dream!

We spend thousands a year to rent a vehicle that we can depend on.  But to buy one of our own would take about a year’s budget, because we can’t finance it.   We dream of a few generous folks who would make the donations to cover this expense, about $60,000.  

We need to train more trainers to have the bench strength we need.  But training trainers to our standards takes time and time is money!  We dream of generous folks who would fund this, about $25,000.

We need more full-time staff in Sierra Leone to do the work.  We worry about burn out in our team there.  We dream of increasing their salary to community standard and hiring our Program Director full-time.  We dream of generous folks who help here, too, with about $15,000 per year for three years.  

If you can help us reach these dreams, please do so!  Click Help MOMS to get started!
