A Million Meters for mothers2mothers
Join us as we row one million meters for m2m during October!
A Million Meters for mothers2mothers is part of m2m’s biggest challenge event to date – Cycle2Zero@home.
By rowing one million meters, we can draw attention to m2m’s vital work saving the lives of women and children living with HIV across sub-Saharan Africa, and raise critical funds to support them, their families, and their communities.
With COVID-19 now hitting these vulnerable populations with full force across Africa, our work – and your support – to keep these families and communities informed, safe, and healthy, has never been more critical. Our frontline staff – the amazing women living with HIV we employ as Mentor Mothers across 10 countries – are bolstering sub-Saharan Africa’s under-resourced health systems while supporting their clients to stay healthy and safe in the face of two pandemics—COVID-19 and HIV.
Thanks to the generous support of two anonymous donors and Carolina and Martin Schwab, all donations during the month of October were matched. Together with the contributions made by individuals around the globe, we have raised:
Your support will help mothers2mothers turn the tide of COVID-19 in sub-Saharan Africa and ensure m2m’s Mentor Mothers and their communities recover from this turbulent year and continue on the path towards health for all.

A Million Meters for mothers2mothers is part of m2m’s biggest challenge event to date – Cycle2Zero@home. Cycle2Zero is m2m’s epic cycling adventure which usually takes place in one of the ten African countries where we work. This year, due to travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, we are bringing the cycle to you! Whether in your home, your garden, or your local park, together we will collectively pedal 5,000km, and raise vital funds to support m2m Mentor Mothers. No bike, no problem? You can walk, run, or row your way to the finish line.
