mothers2mothers (m2m) is an innovative and powerful HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment support project. m2m uses education and empowerment as tools to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of the HIV virus from mothers to babies. Located in antenatal clinics, maternity wards and hospitals that offer treatment to women living with HIV, m2m works alongside established PMTCT treatment programs, offering support to these publicly funded clinical services.
mothers2mothers identifies newly delivered HIV positive mothers, places them in a thorough training curriculum, and returns them to maternity wards and clinics as Mentor Mothers. They offer HIV education, support and counseling, and are paid as integral, valuable and professional members of the health care team.
mothers2mothers has more than 40,000 client interactions per month, and employs well over 500 women in their hundreds of sites across the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal and Mpumalanga. m2m has branched-out with sites in Lesotho, Kenya, and Zambia. Further expansion is scheduled to take place into Rwanda, Malawi and Swaziland.
They have also piloted a successful income generation project Mothers’ Creations which empowers women participating in m2m by encouraging them to become economically independent. New mothers living with HIV, many of whom are the sole providers for their families, are trained in beading skills and design to produce high quality beadwork, which is marketed all around the world.
