Make Mothers Matter (MMM) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO), apolitical and non-denominational, which has been granted General Consultative Status by the United Nations.
It aims to hear and to give a voice to mothers within national and international authorities, in order to give the world more security.
The MMM is a federation of all the cultures promoting the role of mothers, children and the family in around 30 countries. See List of members
The MMM is guided by its founding text, a declaration of principle, The Mother's Charter.
It brings together mothers around the world, regardless of their culture, religion or economic and social situation.
Mothers constitute the largest, most homogeneous and most influential social group in the world because they are united by their concern to ensure the education and the well-being of their children.
Since its foundation in 1947, the MMM has campaigned ceaselessly to highlight the importance of mothers both to their children and to society. The MMM raises awareness amongst the general public and national and international leaders
The MMM makes the voice of mothers heard at the UN (New York/Geneva), at UNESCO (Paris) and at the European Parliament.
The MMM intervenes on subjects that have an impact on families, and particularly on mothers, by their declaration, their stance, inquiries … and organizing talks and seminars.
The MMM coordinates its network of associations through an exchange of experience and knowledge, highlighting the work on the ground by the mothers, by development of exchange workshops anf training for mothers, encouraging them to act at locally and nationally levels.

This association is a member of MMM. Its mission is to make heard the voices of mothers by national authorities.
Thanks to the MMM workshops, mothers are being awakened to their maternal capabilities. They mutually enrich their know-how and they create bonds between mothers from different backgrounds.
There is no such thing as the perfect mother!
Whatever her culture or her lifestyle, each mother has her own and genuine "nuggets of wisdom".
The half-life of an active substance is the time required by a healthy body, with no previous drug use, to eliminate 50% of the absorbed substance. In the case of cannabis, the half-life is 96 hours or 4 days. This means that within 4 days the body has eliminated 50% of the initial dose. 4 days later, there will be 25% of the product left… Within 28 days, cannabis will be totally eliminated from the body of a person who has not consumed it regularly. Traces of decayed THC may be found in a regular consumer’s body up to 40 days after the last take. According to Dr Chamayou’s thesis, 18 months are needed to be completely cleared of cannabis.
In 1968, it contained from 0,6 to 6% of THC – TetraHydroCannabinol - principal active substance. In recent years through genetic modifications, hybrids and greenhouse cultures, it can contain up to 35% of THC. Nowadays, cannabis consumed by teenagers does not have anything in common with what their parents knew. For more information about cannabis see “Technical Information” section.
Physicians are the first witnesses of drug addiction (See: News or Did you know sections)
A drug-addict is someone who takes drugs in order to solve problems created by taking drugs. S/he thinks that s/he can stop taking them whenever s/he wants, however, in spite of the harmful consequences caused by consuming drugs, s/he cannot. If the drug-addict experiences withdrawal symptoms he will think only about providing himself with drugs even if it means acting against his morals. The demand is so strong that anything linked with will, effort, love or morals gradually disappears completely. Lies, violence, aggressiveness, moral or physical suffering, self-harm, being afraid to take part in everyday life become the norm. Because of these evil acts, the drug-addict looses his/her self-esteem and goes deeper into loneliness and suicidal urges.
No parent would lend his car to his child knowing he/she has not learnt to drive. It would also be unconscionable to let one’s teenager go out without having taught him/her what drugs are. Nowadays availability of these products is such that youth can procure them in all the places they frequent – educational establishments, parties, class dinners, rallies, sport clubs... Parents must inform themselves objectively and scientifically about the products so to educate their children on drugs and provide them with the arguments to refuse them. Let us remember that drug addiction doesn’t just happen to others!
