Who Are We?

MOMs4MOMs Fellowship Program is a women empowerment program to pair less privileged mothers with middle-class mothers into the modules on hard and soft skills related to motherhood and entrepreneurship. We will have 40 fellows in each cohort to have more cross-cultural integrations and the program runs from September to March each year followed by the final pitching by end of the program in May.   

一個由香港媽媽組織的媽媽創業家培育計劃

香港創業媽媽將於本年9月12日正式推行首屆媽媽創業家培育計劃。該計劃將邀請香港各階層媽媽們參與一起學習和交流。計劃的特色亦會迎合不同國籍和階層媽媽的需要,一起探討本年度香港創業媽媽的主題《母限》。

媽媽是家庭中的靈魂,很多時候她也充當了多功能的角色,既是行政總裁也是財政大臣,又是大廚也是技工;她更是孩子們心目中的榜樣。香港創業媽媽是香港第一間非牟利團體支援母親繼續追尋理想,從而成為下一代的榜樣。

MOMs4MOMs媽媽創業家培育計劃將透過工作坊及工作計劃加以師友輔導,讓媽媽們能夠學習更多知識去面對當母親和企業家的挑戰:由自身改變、終身學習、健康生活、維繫關係、平衡生活以及保護環境多方面探討。完成計劃的學員可將於香港創業媽媽下年五月的旗艦活動當中介紹她們的工作計劃。而最佳的學員更可獲邀加入香港創業媽媽也可以參加實習機會,開展她們的事業。

 

 

The Cause:

During the global pandemic COVID-19 outbreak, women often mothers are the most vulnerable. Globally women do 3 times as much unpaid care work as men and up to 70% of healthcare workers is conducted by women. Bringing women’s economic resilience to be ready for any uncertainty going forward becomes more important than ever.  

Mothers have special bonding power - they can be connected easily and be able to support each other to explore more about Motherhood and Entrepreneurship. 

Being the frontier of the household, mothers should be geared up to be resilient and ready for any uncertainty and unknown ahead of time.

Mothers are often neglected with learning opportunities; mothers should be granted with all the possibilities in their journey of discovery, unlearning and relearning. We are proud to pioneer the first cohort of MOMs4MOMs Fellowship Program to bring to moms from all walks of life together in learning more Motherhood and Entrepreneurship.  We are also delighted to offer Internship opportunities to the most outstanding fellows from the program

About MOMS4MOMS:

Beneficiaries:

  • 40 fellows of diverse education, ethnicity and cultural background
  • All-female cohort with mothers preferred.   

If I look at the need for marginalized Ethnic Minorities, there is a need for so much. There is a need for women who are involved in the education for their children to look at the provision of books, extracurricular activities, the provision of helping each other. Only when you are in that position as a mother, do you think of what your children need and what your household might need and therefore you can think of creative ways for solving for those problems.

Shalini Mahtani, MBE, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of The Zubin Foundation
