At mothers2mothers (m2m), we often express how lucky we are to work with so many amazing women and to hear their stories of hope and empowerment, witnessing firsthand how they are able to inspire change in their communities. However, we always wish that we could share their stories with more of you. That is why we are so thrilled to congratulate m2m Mentor Mother Irene Nkosi who has been named one of People Magazine’s 25 Women Changing the World in 2017!
Irene has been with m2m since 2008. She is a dedicated Mentor Mother, running one of our sites near Pretoria, South Africa, and an inspirational spokeswoman, unafraid to share her story to help others. She truly is changing the world by bringing health and hope to other women and their families. And Irene is in good company! Other women on the list include wildlife activist Jane Goodall, actors Gal Gadot and Kathy Bates, and singer and activist Demi Lovato. Read more about these extraordinary women here, or watch the PeopleTV special, People’s 25 Women Changing the World (see Irene’s interview at 49:50).
Congrats Irene, we are so proud to call you a member of the m2m family!
