Why? How do you want to change it? MAMMU is a social business fashion company providing young Latvian mothers in need with flexible working time. Mothers who have to combine childcare and earning money. Since many mothers cant find a kindergarden place for there children it is nearly impossible earning money and caring for the children at the same time. The social benefit payed to those mothers is so low that they live way below the basket minimum (the minimum that you need per month so that you can survive). MAMMU trains those mothers in how to produce the MAMMU fashion products and how to set up there own micro production company.
