2016/05/08 It's Mother's Day in Belgium, in Germany, in Italy, in Netherlands....

 

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
to all mothers from the MMM teams.
 

Our mission is to highlight your role in society, to show that progress and development happen also through you! You are irreplaceable and are the best experts of your children. May that conviction give you courage when you find it difficult to balance your family life and your professional life, when you doubt your skills as educators, when society does not always recognize the importance of what you do every day for your children, your family and your community. The future of our societies passes through you! With immense gratitude, we say:

THANK YOU, MUMS!
