Celebrating Moms Around the World
May 12, 2019 4:14 PM
This Mother’s Day, we sent the message below to our full email list lifting up the incredible moms in our programs who are making their communities a better place for all—and raising the next generation of changemakers at the same time. To make sure you don’t miss updates like these, you can sign up for our email list here.
As Mother’s Day approaches, it’s our privilege to honor some of the powerful moms who are making a difference while raising the next generation of leaders. Like so many, these women are driving change around the world while serving as inspirations at home.
Leaders like Veronica Crespin-Palmer, Dr. Mwansa Ketty Lubeya, and Ana Maria Gonzalez-Forero have picked up the baton of leadership from their own mothers and grandmothers and are now demonstrating that same love, patience, and tenacity to their own children.
In Colorado, Veronica, an Obama Fellow, is working to ensure that marginalized communities have access to a quality education.
In Zambia, Africa Leader Dr. Mwansa Ketty Lubeya works as a gynecologist to treat cervical cancer and improve women’s health while caring for her five children.
And in Colombia, Obama Foundation Scholar Ana Maria Gonzalez-Forero works to ensure sustainable development for indigenous communities.
Veronica, Dr. Mwansa, Ana Maria, and countless moms across the globe are working tirelessly to create a safer, kinder, and more just world for their children to inherit. They show us that inspiration doesn’t just come from within—it’s also handed down through generations.
To those who we wouldn’t be here without,
