WHY 1000?

PREGNANCY TWINNING 1000  focuses on the most formative phase of a baby’s life; the first 1,000 days – from conception until their 2nd birthday. So we support Mums and Dads, in both Africa and the UK, through pregnancy and until their child is 2.

1000 dreams in Africa –  our 3-year goal is to see 1000 mums in the Africa, and be fully supported during their first 1000 days. Will you be one of the 1000 supporters needed to reach this goal?

It's World AIDS Day & we are celebrating the work of frontline and Community Health workers

NEWS

Our Mother Buddies make up to 12 visits on vulnerable families during the first 1000 days of life – 3 during pregnancy, 3 after birth and 6 over the next 2 years. See more about the work of our Mother Buddies here.

Its GIVING TUESDAY – If you know someone who’s pregnant, how about giving them a Pregnancy Twinning gift by twinning their pregnancy with a mum in Malawi? – where the situation re Covid-19 is getting worse and they need all the help they can get! Your friend/relative will receive a framed Certificate, of a mum in Malawi who’s being helped by your support, together with a personalised message from you.

And, if you believe in the importance of the first 1000 days, how about becoming a 1000dreams investor – just £10 a month for 33 months will support a whole family through pregnancy, birth and until their child is 2. It’s a great way to make a huge difference not only for mums and dads but for their new baby too – and you will receive your own framed sponsor Certificate!

Finally, in a survey in the UK, presented by the Duchess of Cambridge, of over half a million people, ‘76% of parents are not aware that the first five years are most important for health and happiness in adulthood.’ You can download a copy of the report here.

We offer help to mums in the UK and in Africa to support mums and dads in optimising the early years of life. In the UK see the link below to our mental health resources and counselling.
