Dear ##contact_first_name|Friend##,
We’re delighted that so many of you let us celebrate your mothers and mother-figures with you this Mothers Day. Through your generosity, you’re helping poor mothers around the world nurture their own children.

Poor women are especially important to us because they help to keep the fabric of their communities together. In Ghana, we’re helping pregnant women and new mothers give their children a bright start. Watch this video to learn more about our mobile health program. And read on below to meet a mother in Uganda who is helping her fellow farmers improve their lives.

The Fruits of Knowledge

Armed with a smartphone, Alice Lunkuse is helping poor farmers improve their families' lives

Until a few months ago Alice Lunkuse was a housewife, who grew a few crops to help support her family. Today, farmers in her community seek her out for advice on how to deal with pests and help improve their crops and livestock.

Alice is a Community Knowledge Worker and part of a growing network of more than 1,000 trusted local advisors dedicated to helping poor farmers across Uganda produce more food and earn more money for their families.
