Mamas for Mamas removes barriers to poverty relief through digital sharing economies and a charitable safety net support from head office hub. As a tech-charity, we create a safe digital space where Mother’s can reach out for help to fill the gaps in economic disparity, emotional poverty, and community isolation. We have dozens of digital branches nationwide addressing these varying levels of debt and an associated nonprofit office to fill the gaps in what they’re able to access on the peer-based platform.
Beyond providing access to items from the digital sharing economies, we also offer job opportunities through based job banks, and training for sustainable food growing practices to fill gaps in food security. Mamas is a nationwide community of Mother’s donating, sharing supporting and connecting with one another to improve quality of life and create a local and national connection.
We are addressing the maternal mental illness epidemic by building a sense of community among other caregivers while offering a physical space in which to meet, access at-risk comprehensive support and accessing items not available on the peer-based platform at our Karma Market (free store) and monthly swaps for satellite branches. Mamas provide reproductive health information and support for young mamas and their families through our registered social worker. We ensure the well-being of the children in our communities through no-fee youth mental health counselling and acting as a liaison with the ministry of child and family development when child safety concerns present.
The opposite of poverty isn’t wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice. If you need help or support, come to Mamas.
