Charities these days have become more like businesses and operate in a very paternalistic way to the people they are meant to serve.

 

There is also the the added problem of what happens when aid from the West runs out or is reduced which is happening currently under the Trump Administration with “America First”. When security is pulled out from under people it can lead to fatal results. Fund a Mom believes in giving monthly stipends unconditionally, to poor Indian women, letting them decide for themselves what they need to survive. Everyone is better off when they are self determined and can exist closer to their passions. Happiness and security is always a better determinant for success.

In India, without their husbands, widowed or deserted Mothers find it especially hard to survive.

 

Women in the “untouchable” caste face violence and discrimination and are thought to be impure. Human rights abuses against them are legion. Fund a mom will channel the blessings of Moms in the West who can afford to donate just $30 a month and will use it to lift women in the slums of India out of destitution. This project is designed to mirror the concept of a “universal basic income” which is being studied in various countries as an alternative way to help people who are suffering because of extreme poverty. We believe that our woman to woman, mom to mom initiative can achieve the extra benefit of women’s empowerment in a place sorely lacking in equal opportunity for women and girls. That is why Fund A Mom was born.

The idea of a universal basic income is around the corner.

 

Billionaires, the tech elite, cultural leaders and philanthropists are endorsing it. The left-leaning Roosevelt Institute found in an August study that giving every adult in the United States a $1,000 per month would grow the economy by $2.5 trillion by 2025. People would spend the money, powering up the economy, according to the study.  Dr Martin Luther King was an advocate for a basic income and at the 100th Birthday celebrations of Nelson Mandela in South Africa recently President Barack Obama advocated for it too.

So where are the women advocating for this?
Look in the mirror!

 

If we can make this successful in the most cash poor
place on earth – Mothers in the slums of India – then
it can be successful anywhere.
