Somebody's Mama exists to bring awareness to issues affecting women across the globe, to create a community of people who care deeply about finding real solutions, and to turn ideas into action.
Our vision is to invest in partnerships that empower women
across all cultures and people.
We do this by raising awareness and funding global projects focused on women's healthcare, education, economic empowerment, and ending violence against women.
We are currently partnering with Love Without Boundaries to build a "sibling school" in Sokhem, a rural village on the border of Cambodia and Thailand. Love Without Boundaries will implement a holistic community program that provides nutrition, healthcare, education, and childcare.
The sibling school will serve the infants and toddlers of working mothers, many of whom leave home to cross into Thailand well before first light and don’t return until late in the evening. This care center will allow the older children to attend school fulltime and will also provide the babies with much needed nutrition. An alarming 75% of the children in this village suffer from chronic malnutrition. Not only that, but the sibling school will also provide employment to seven women in the area—a director, four caregivers, and two aides. Read more here.

by the degree of progress which women have achieved.”
