OneMama Model’s Economic Sustainability component trains clinic members to create their own indigenous crafts and agricultural crops for sale worldwide through the OneMama online Local & International Marketplace. Those funds then return back to the community to sustain the OneMama clinic. Our training includes Entrepreneurial Education to local crafts persons and agriculture workers on how to develop wider capabilities for their goods and crops. The OneMama International Marketplace is an online marketplace which provides a platform to sell local crops and goods and is supported by our international and local partners. The funding created by the Economic Empowerment program, and other local and global funding sources, helps build Clinic sustainability within 5-10 years of set up.
