Movement to Support the Role of Mothers during the Pandemic
A mother plays such an essential role in family dynamics. Serving multiple roles that make her versatile, now amidst a pandemic, mothers’ multitasking ability gets continuously tempered with the increasingly complex household tasks to perform. A mother becomes a figure who allows her family to continue to function and to progress.
Mothers on Mission (MoM) is a social enterprise that provides a conducive and supportive environment for mothers who want to continue to be productive, to achieve their aspirations and dreams without leaving their routines of taking care of the household.
In celebration of its fourth anniversary this year, MoM launches the #StandUp4Moms movement. It is a movement to support mothers to be able to keep their spirits high despite facing various challenges during this time of pandemic.
Widya Safitri the CEO of Mothers on Mission (MoM) and MoM Academy (MoMA) said, “A conducive support environment plays an increasingly crucial role for mothers to help one another. In this situation, we see that the community of mothers can be a forum to for mothers who face various similar challenges to strengthen one another.”
“For this reason, Mothers on Mission (MoM) and its MoM Academy (MoMA) community encourage women to keep working even from home by launching #Standup4Moms movement to celebrate the important role that mothers have so that mothers provide support, spread enthusiasm and inspire their fellow women peers to stay strong and be the best mothers for themselves and their families.”
#Standup4Moms is dedicated to all mothers in Indonesia who continue to struggle and work with enthusiasm even in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.
Through the 2021 MomFest, the celebration awards MoM Heroes who have shown perseverance and hardwork for their families as well as give positive impacts to their surrounding environment.
