Campaign successfully funded on: 23 May,2014
Mommy Made began as a university students initiative, supported by Injaz Al Arab, that evolved into a nonprofit catering line that recruits, trains and employs mothers with social and financial challenges and turns them into self-sufficient persons and empowers them to provide better lives for their families. http://mommymade.me/
We believe that underprivileged women have the right to work,
earn a decent wage, sustain their families and live in dignity. And so, Mommy Made is collaborating with several NGOs and Social enterprises that will build fully-equipped kitchens, hire unprivileged mothers, to empower mothers in different regions of Lebanon and later on the Arab world.
Mommy Made Objectives
· Transform the lives of underprivileged families by providing the mothers training and work so they will get good salaries to sustain their families.
· Educate their children at affordable school. This will keep them off the streets, and will provide them a better future.
Our Concept and methodology
Our Methodology is instead of giving food and clothes to needy people, we will support the underprivileged to acquire skills and become self-sustainable, earning their living and becoming a plus for their environment.
Mommy Made: " recruit, train and employ" program
"Mommy Made: recruit, train and employ" program is structured for two months
1. Recruit: our first step is to recruit for employment several mothers in underprivileged regions. The recruitment is made on the basis of financial and social challenges in any region in Lebanon.
2. Train: The mothers are going to receive a full training from experts (Chefs, ISO consultants and food safety trainers) in order to provide the quality wanted by Mommy Made. The initial skills of mothers cooking at home are going to be very helpful in achieving our goals, as well as a communication training to enhance their ability to communicate.
3. Employ: After finishing the training, the mothers are either employed in Mommy Made catering (cooking, catering, cleaning…) or in one of the 50 restaurants Mommy Made is in collaboration with. This will enable us to employ a large number of mothers and make a greater social impact.
We already made a first version of this training program with 4 ladies funded by “Injaz el Arab”.
A second version, of this program was funded by “Première Urgence–Aide Médicale Internationale” from the United Nations in May 2013. The second version was a success as Mommy Made recruited, trained and found employment for 10 unprivileged mothers. In addition, we were able via this program to integrate their 17 children in schools. And so, we hope that with your help we can fund a new version of Mommy Madeprogram in order to support more women and children in a sustainable way.
This program won local awards from Berytech GSVC and “Nabad – arcenciel” competition for social entrepreneurship funded by USAID in December 2013. Mommy Made also won a regional award as “Best Women Empowerment Project” among five Arab countries by Injaz and Coca Cola foundation, in addition of being semi finalist in Dell Social Innovation international competition.
With these awards, our program got a high media exposure such as article in Daily Star and interviews in several social shows on MBC and LBC.
to build Mommy Made franchise and expand our social impact to all mothers in
the regions, and hopefully in the future to the entire Arab world.
With the financing from your side, we will be able to launch a sales department in Mommy Made, cater more events, and empower more mothers. We will be able to finance a full time salesperson or freelance sales people. Getting a wider exposure for Mommy Made, getting more catering events and becoming able to train and employ more mothers.
