In its oral Statement, MMM highlighted the crucial role that mothers can play in preventing radicalisation and violent extremism, if only they are empowered to do so and their contribution better recognized. Mothers are often the first to recognize fear, resignation, frustration, and anger in their adolescent children. They often have a unique access to their children’s vulnerabilities that no Institution can have.

"Our mission is to highlight your role in society and to show that what you do, also contributes to progress and development. You are unique and you are the best experts for your children : think of that, when you juggle with family and work, when you doubt your skills as educators, when your daily commitment for your children, family and community is ignored. The future of our societies depends on you!
So we are happy to say:
