I strongly believe in the power of a voice to make change and do social good. Therefore, I have began advocating for a number of non-profit organizations to help people around the world. I am currently advocating for the following groups/causes:
Mom Bloggers for Social Good and The Global Team of 200: A group of highly passionate bloggers who work with NGOs to cover such issues as maternal and newborn health, women and girls rights, safe water and sanitation, access to education, and hunger. NGO partners include UNICEF, Save the Children, WaterAid, Pratham, The World Food Programme and other smaller international NGOs. To view related posts, click here.
UN Foundation Shot@Life: Provides life-saving vaccines in developing countries. I have worked as a champion and mentor since 2011.
ONE and ONE MOMS: Grassroots organization to fight extreme poverty. I work as a ONE Moms Community Partner and have covered such issues as hunger, poverty, food security, education and women’s rights.
RESULTS: The power to end global poverty. I attended the 2012 International Results Conference in Washington DC in July 2012 where I learned about global health, microfinance and education.
My social good work and advocacy writing also appears on The Huffington Post – Impact and Global Motherhood Sections.
I also write for social good issues for World Moms Blog, where I am one of the social good editors and contributors.
