One of the leading principles of Social Good Moms is to make sure our dedicated members have opportunities to report on global health and development programs on the ground with our partners in low-and-middle-income countries. Each year we take Social Good Moms on our own insight trips and similarly we work directly with our partners to plan learning trips to see their work abroad with influential members.
If you would like more information about planning a trip with us in 2018 email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have previously worked with WaterAid America, Coca-Cola, Save the Children, and World Vision US on insight trips abroad.
