Why spread the love and support moms around the world?
70% of the 1.3 billion people worldwide in extreme poverty are women and girls.

Women make up 2/3 of the global illiterate population and 60% of the world’s hungry.

50% of pregnant women in developing countries lack proper maternal care, resulting in 240,000 maternal deaths annually from childbirth.

Women and children spend 140 million hours each day collecting water.

Women with six or more years of education are more likely to seek prenatal care, assisted childbirth, and postnatal care, reducing the risk of maternal and child mortality and illness.

A single year of primary school has been shown to increase women's wages by 10%- 20%, and a secondary education causes an increase of 15%-25%.

A child born to a mother who can read is 50% more likely to survive past the age of five than a child born to an illiterate woman.

An educated woman improves the health of her family through better nutrition and health care.
