Payel Farasat’s heart-to-heart with Fund A Mom’s founder Leigh Blake & CEO Ann Haggart
Fund A Mom is working tirelessly to end poverty - one mother at a time.
Fund A Mom knows that guaranteed income directed to single Moms is a stroke of genius. After years of experience in charitable giving with everyone from Bono to Alicia Keys, we created Fund A Mom to demonstrate the power of direct support to women in need and the ongoing benefit of economic autonomy.
After three years of monthly support going directly to single mothers in the slums of Jaipur, our women and children are thriving. The families eat better, the children have returned to school, overall health has improved, and the women are broadening their employment opportunities or starting business.
Based on the incredible success of our investment in moms, Fund A Mom seeks to expand to support a group of 1,000 moms + approximately 4,000 children in Jaipur, Pune and Delhi, India.
