Global Funding Solutions for Social Entrepreneurs UN Event Hosted by OneMama.org
The United Nations’ 60th Commission on the Status of Women marked a milestone accomplishment for OneMama.org. This is the second year maternal health nonprofit, OneMama.org, has attended the United Nations CSW, and the first year the organization hosted its own event, Global Funding Solutions for Social Entrepreneurs. OneMama founder, Siobhan Neilland, and 50 Women Project founder, Jessica Buchleitner, brought together women from all over the world who despite numerous challenges, are transmuting their traumas into positive social change–and doing so through creative funding solutions.
Siobhan Neilland shared the personal tragedy that gave birth to OneMama.org. She also shared the “OneMama ecosystem,” which consists of The OneMama Collection and ShaBoom Products, two product lines Siobhan founded to fund maternal health programs in rural Ugandan communities surviving on under $1.25 a day.
