Our Approach

Through our Mentor Mother Model, m2m employs local women living with HIV as Frontline Health Workers. These “Mentor Mothers” dramatically improve the health and wellbeing of:

WOMEN AGED 15-49

Mentor Mothers educate and support women and their families to access healthcare, start the treatment they need, and stay in care.

CHILDREN AGED 0-9

m2m is committed to ensuring that every child thrives, not just survives, through services to protect and improve the health and development of infants and children.

ADOLESCENTS AGED 10-24

m2m works to create health and wellbeing for adolescent girls and boys, and young adults, with a focus on reducing HIV infections and related illnesses, as well as youth-friendly services for those living with HIV.

We need your support to deliver health, hope, and an HIV-free future.

Wilbroda’s Story

“Finding out I was HIV-positive while pregnant felt like a death sentence for me and my unborn child. My family isolated me. Being a single mother, jobless, and dependent on people broke my self-esteem.

Fortunately, a mothers2mothers (m2m) Mentor Mother explained that I could still be healthy, and thanks to her support, my boy was born HIV-free. I decided to join m2m as a Mentor Mother.

Becoming a Mentor Mother changed everything. I used my knowledge to educate my family about HIV, who treated me like a human again. I now help women make informed decisions to keep them and their families healthy, and make them feel understood and appreciated – I know how important that is.”
