For the first time, we’re featuring TWO mamas as our Mama(s) of the Month, who were responsible for helping us turn our first good ideas into action. Meet Amy Williams and Sister Ephrance Nuwamanya.

Sister Ephrance and her staff understand the needs of their community in a way that helps their American counterparts to pursue the most helpful and culturally-appropriate projects. At Somebody’s Mama, we believe in building partnerships with people who are on the ground, serving in their communities just like we are at home in ours. We recognize our strengths and passions as a piece of a much bigger puzzle—one that can not even begin to be put together if we don’t first listen to the stories of people who are living day-to-day in the communities we are hoping to empower.

Our partnership with BARHD three years ago was the beginning of what we hope will be a long and fruitful friendship, one that links Ugandan mamas to Sister Ephrance to Amy to us and to you. No words can express how grateful we are to BARHD and BIRD for inviting us on this journey with them. We are united in our love for each other, which knows no boundaries.
