MAKE MOTHERS MATTER INTERNATIONAL
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.

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".
Drugs are not a disease. The best way to stop them is not to take any. Heroin addicts who achieved withdraw admit that complete abstinence is the only solution. They say it themselves : it is more difficult to withdraw from Subutex (substitution drugs) than from heroin…
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!
A joint is made out of pure cannabis or grass; or hashish mixed with tobacco.
Alcohol is a general term, which covers a wide variety of products:
wine, cider, beer, port, cognac, whisky, vodka are types of alcohol with various rates of alcoholic content ranging from 5 to 90 ° (active principles)
Cannabis works the same way: but when we talk about a joint of grass or hashish, there are more than 100 varieties and its T.H.C. rate (active principles) –ranges from 4% to 35% - goes unnoted.alcools aux taux variés de 5 à 90 degrés ( principes actifs)
Physicians are the first witnesses of drug addiction (See: News or Did you know sections)
AEROSOLS Nitrous oxide and other pressurized gases such as those contained in whipped cream canisters or computer anti-dust sprays also have hallucinogenic effects. In a few seconds they produce excitement, dizziness, euphoria, loss of consciousness and affect the central nervous system through lack of oxygen. Moreover they are inhaled under pressure and can provoke lung frostbite and vocal chords injuries, (eg. immediately after taking this drug the voice becomes lower.)
POPPERS Volatile nitrites have similar effects to nitrous oxide. Moreover they can provoke panic attacks, heart palpitations and headaches. They are also responsible for deaths by anoxia. They are vasodilators frequently used to relax sphincter muscles. They are carcinogenic and provoke serious immune deficiencies – such as AIDS.
STAIN REMOVER Stain removers are derived from ethylene. They are hallucinogenic but their effect is more calming, unlike poppers and aerosols, which are more stimulating. They cause damage that is neurological (deafness, tremor) and intellectual (dementia).
