ACTIVATE -- a Brief explanation!
Momivate has four -vate words that are like a set of gears, putting in action the programs of our nonprofit organization:
Activate, Cultivate, Innovate, and Elevate.
ACTIVATE means rallying the troops! Enlisting mothers to proudly and dutifully accept the role assigned to them by Mother Nature to help their offspring get to adulthood, contributing positively to society. We want to inspire women to WANT to be mothers and reclaim their right to the throne (since the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world!)
Our programs here consist of adjusting attitudes, even campaigning -- helping mothers realize that despite their imperfections, they have the potential to change the world one child at a time. We crafted an empowering Momifesto, written in first-person, which mothers can adopt as their proclamation of maternal intentions and objectives. Our Calendar of MomEvents fits in nicely as a cog on this gear, inviting mothers to gather (virtually or in person). You'll also find a page highlighting some of the women who volunteer their time to create all the offerings of Momivate!
Once a mother has a solid grasp of that responsibility, a common reaction is a humble feeling of overwhelm, such as not knowing enough and worrying we'll mess up our children because of that lack of knowledge. And so the next gear is CULTIVATE -- taking those seeds of maternal instincts and nourishing them into flower power! This gear has its own set of programs -- click here for an introduction!
We must revolutionize what motherhood looks like, upgrading it to match the modern-day world we live in. The next gear, then, is to INNOVATE! Our programs in this area involve thinking outside the box, purposely encouraging the evolution of motherhood to be a more desirable profession, not in competition with our careers but as enrichment to our personal growth.
As we activate, cultivate, and innovate, the gears move along and we ELEVATE mothers and motherhood, not just in their own eyes, but in the eyes of the world at large. The programs in this area include a Wall of Honor, featuring mothers of all walks of life. We will offer RAISE certification to mothers that will be useful while they're building their families -- AND we'll teach employers to value this certification when they see it on a resume!
All of the gears interact with one another and cause the other gears to move along. When you partner with us, either as a mother who takes advantages of our offerings, or as a benefactor, funding these initiatives in honor of the power of mothers, you'll be amazed at what gears can do! Thank you for trusting Momivate with the worthy goal to elevate motherhood!
