Volunteers and employees

Hundreds of volunteers and employees have made Mama Cash who she is today.

Everyone has contributed in their own way: as a volunteer in the office, as one of many advisors connected to local women’s movements around the world, as a member of one of the boards or as a paid employee. Some of them diligently went through the stacks of grant requests and had to make difficult decisions about which would receive support, others kept the address files up to date in Mama Cash’s database, and still others visited women’s rights activists in places that were far from home.

Take a look around and meet the women who have contributed to the work of Mama Cash over the course of the years, and on whose shoulders we are standing now. Read the stories of women who made a special contribution, who organised the archives, who searched for women’s groups to support after the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia and who entered into a conversation with worldly nuns, who became loyal donors. We extend our thanks to all of you. Mama Cash continues today because of you, and together we are changing the world into a place where justice, peace and sustainability are widespread.
