Viewchange: The Mothers Index
Each year in the United States, mothers are celebrated on one special day – Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 8th). But in many parts of the world – particularly developing countries – mothers face extra burdens just to survive, take care of their children, and contribute to their communities. To take a deeper look into the lives of the world’s moms, Link TV’s ViewChange.org has partnered with Save the Children to produce a new documentary, ViewChange: The Mothers Index. Come take a global tour of some of the best and worst places to be mom. Learn about Save the Children’s annual “State of the World’s Mothers” report, and the conditions necessary for women and children to thrive. Along the way, you’ll learn about a life-saving maternal health program in Malawi; a community health program in Nepal that is saving the lives of babies; an education program in Bangladesh that’s empowering young girls, and more – including where the U.S. ranks on the “Mother’s Index.” It is a moving and powerful segment; one that encourages us to give back to the women that help run and foster our world, while reminding us of the work done by our own moms.
