Next year we're coming back - bigger and better than ever. In 2020, Team Mum hope to raise enough to bring pregnant women's groups to a new area of Kenya, this time working specifically with very young mums.
We're also hoping to launch the next iteration of our Baby Box Project - providing more mums with the latest safe sleeping information, and babies with a safe place to be.
A big campaign like this from a small charity requires months of planning and support from people like you!
Here's how you can help right now...
1. Tell us who we should be working with!
Do you listen to a fab parenting podcast, get a great magazine or know someone running wonderful mum and baby classes? We would love to hear your suggestions of where you would like to see (or hear) Team Mum next year. Please email me your suggestions for Team Mum Partners at email@example.com. Being able to cite a recommendation from you really helps us to make that approach.
For inspiration, check out the list of partners from last time at child.org/teammum.
2. Join us as a partner!
Do you have a way to reach a UK parenting audience and let them know about Team Mum? Please fill in this form to pledge to Sell One Thing and donate the proceeds during the appeal in 2020.
We'll use your pledge to apply to the UK government for UK Aid Match. If you can contribute a reach of over 300,000 - please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org about planning some joint activity, or give me a ring on the Child.org UK office mobile - 07751768207.

What are we doing with the money you raised last time?
Child.org's programming team are working hard to create the pregnancy support group programme funded by our 2019 campaign and matched funding from the UK Government. We've hired a new member of the team, Dorothy, who will be based in Meru. Dorothy, Chero and Margaret (from our partner organisaion in Meru) have been conducting meetings with the ministry of health in the country to organise close collaboration, and the team are all working on the Pregnancy Support Groups Manual, which will instruct social mobilisers on how to run the support groups and contain all the information to provide to expectant mums.
