Green Goo Partners With World Vision to Support Moms & Babies Around the World
Why partner with World Vision? Because they are bringing health and hope to moms and babies around the world.
Green Goo is donating 1% of sales of our Baby Bundle Set to World Vision’s Mother and Child Health, a program that educates and empowers women to have healthier pregnancies and stronger babies.
The first 1,000 days define a child’s future. Where extreme poverty exists, pregnant women and children under five are dying too often, simply because they don’t have access to the most basic health information, care, and nutrition. World Vision knows what it takes to address this gap, and they’re bringing solutions to the most vulnerable populations in the hardest-to-reach places.
"We are thrilled to partner with World Vision," explains Jodi Scott, Founder and CEO of Green Goo. "As a woman-owned company, we understand the importance of supporting mothers and children, not only here at the Green Goo offices, but also around the world. That's why we felt it was so important to develop a complete Mama and Baby line. Now we're taking it a step further and donating the proceeds from some of those products to this forward-thinking organization."
Through their Mother and Child Health Signature Initiative, World Vision commits to expand health and nutrition programs that will help end preventable illness and death for more than 4 million mothers and children.
World Vision Impact
Their approach focuses on pregnant women, mothers, and babies in their first 1,000 days of life—the time from conception to a child’s second birthday, during which the brain grows to 80 percent of adult size. With basic health education, they empower women to have healthier pregnancies, lower-risk deliveries, and stronger babies. They use the 7-11 approach: 7 proven interventions for mothers and 11 for children that prevent malnutrition and infectious diseases.
Their impact is significantly strengthened by community health workers, local volunteers trained and equipped by World Vision to be the frontline caregivers in their communities. Their massive network of more than 220,000 is one of the largest in the world.
