Our Mission

We believe that girls and women can become empowered to end cervical cancer globally. We seek fresh and dynamic voices and experiences of mothers (including caregivers) and daughters to collaborate as a team to identify ways to promote HPV vaccination for girls and HPV screening for women. We believe you hold a mirror to our society and can challenge conventional expectations about ways to end cervical cancer.


Our Vision

A world where cervical cancer is eliminated.


Our Values


We value girls and women, above all things. We believe you hold the mirror to our society and we exist to serve, listen, learn, and lead with and for you.


We are constantly seeking new and culturally-centered ways to end cervical cancer in Nigeria and globally. We believe you have the experience and we are eager to learn from you.


We are committed to changing as we build, uplifting as we work to find ways to end cervical cancer. We value your trust and are prepared always to make changes to suit your needs, your perspectives, and your context.


We believe that mother (or other female caregivers) and daughter bonds are integral in our society. Part love, part friendship, part sisterhood, part community, we are open to listening and learning of ways this bond can be used to end cervical cancer.
