Shri Narendra Modi ji, has extended his support through a letter stating.

“Mother’s United Moment (MUM) is an initiative to honor mothers as mothers, for balancing their personal and professional life gracefully through a picture story. As a mom, I always felt that the voice of the mother is unheard, however empowered they are. I wanted to give them a medium to express themselves through their lens and tell their compelling tale in their own words, to encourage other mothers who are grappling and feeling alone.”

Shikha Khanna, Curator of MUM said,

“What makes this book different from the rest is the way it captures the essence of motherhood by self-portrait. Here mothers are visually expressing themselves and their stories.”

MUM is physically bringing together over 100 mothers across the globe in a 3-day event from 11th to 13th November 2022 in Pune’s Oxford Golf Resort to recognize, reward, and celebrate motherhood.

It will be tough for attendees to choose which session to attend and which one to skip because each one is curated fully with more engaging content.

The 3-day event will see fund-raising activities like the Run for MUM Marathon, Pune tour, film screening, and entertainment programs like Sufi Music night, stand-up acts, and many more.

Funds raised will be donated to building sensory room at Sunderji Institute of Special School, which provides a conducive learning environment for neurodiverse children whose educational needs cannot be met within a mainstream setting.
