Our Mission and Vision Statement

Vision

We work towards a world where all girls can live healthy, safe, educated lives while defining their own purpose-a world in which menstrual health management is recognized as a human right, and the onset of puberty as the most effective time to engage girls in a range of personal health decisions.

We want to inspire a new generation of life transformers in Africa-Girls in leadership and economic transformation.

Mission

Mustard Seed Foundation equips adolescent girls in Nigeria and Uganda with the tools they need to safely navigate puberty and step into their potential. We support community and government-led advocacy efforts to break the period taboo and lend our voice in menstrual health management that leverages reproductive health education and sanitary pads as a combined intervention for women and girls’ empowerment.

Our Purpose

To Make Changes Everyday!

Recognizing the need for change is good, choosing to bring about the change is better. That is why we at Mustard Seed are choosing to take action. Life long change is a gradual process and the impact of today's actions are not always obvious.

However, it is heartwarming to know that in our own little ways we were part of the eventual change. We invite you to take a tour of our website to learn more about who we are, what we do, and how you can help.

    David..USA

  • "We saw them some months ago in our community asking questions, afterwards they requested a meeting with our elders and community leaders. After some weeks, we received a message of their desire to come to our community to provide free medical care. And today they are here. Many of our people have been seen by doctors and medical teams and drugs given. They screened for sicknesses and diseases like AIDS, Malaria, High Blood Pressure, etc. I even had my eyes checked and given this glasses. I see well now. They also gave us mosquito nets and our children will not be sick of malaria again. All our children were also given medication for worm parasite today. Our people are grateful"
