2020-2022 #Still Connected Projects

Dear Friends of the Mama Project,


We started 2020 with beautiful plans for a summer Mama Project in Cape Town called "Colorful Women Hold Your Head High" with guest artist Ghanaian fashion designer Queen Allotey-Pappoe, and musicians Alutha Taho and Rebeka Rain.  


COVID-19 disrupted these plans, but we are #StillConnected!  The Mama Project Leadership Council mobilized quickly to adapt and respond, re-directing all of our funds to critical food relief efforts, holiday drives, local outreach for Women's Day, and safe creative and community projects called Mini-Mamas led by the Mama Leadership Council in Cape Town. Please read and enjoy all we were able to do across the globe in our 2020-21-22 news below! And check out and support our NEW IN-PERSON PROJECT FOR 2023: DRAW THE CIRCLE WIDE.

Thank you for your continued support of The Mama Project.  We wish you health and joy, 


--Sara, Heather, Alutha & Asanda

and all of us at The Mama Project
