Welcome to the Mothers Legacy Project

We are addressing the most pressing issues identified by the United Nations as facing  the well being of women with an emphasis focus on maternal mortality.  We work at the United Nations in New York and in Geneva, Switzerland where we participate in the Commission on the Status of Women and serve hand in hand with other nongovernmental agencies and nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping families worldwide.


Our ultimate goal is to decrease maternal mortality around the world is to memorialize mothers who have died, thus increasing public awareness and strengthening the collective resolve needed to unite communities in action for the benefit and protection of mothers. We will transform how societies address maternal mortality and thereby save lives, one community at a time.
