INSPIRE, EDUCATE & CREATE
A 501-3c made to inspire, educate and create a better world for those who are here and those who are coming...
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
A Mother's Earth knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Vanessa Boshoff and I have two sons. As a mother, I have grown more and more aware of the amazing mother stories from around the world. These mothers inspire me to get involved, give me hope, have tugged at my heart and motivated me to seek our more of them and share their stories. They have taught me what hardships and obstacles women all over the planet go through to protect, teach and ensure a future for their little ones. Every story displays a very different aspect of this ever-changing world, some hit close to home, and others perhaps, we were not even aware of. With threats of poverty, illness, extinction, displacement, the future seems somewhat bleak for these families, yet every mother goes headstrong with an undeterred hope for a better tomorrow.
Back in 2016, our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working globally, and together- we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch A Mother's Earth. Our mission- to create content and media that inspires and connects people around the planet. I believe that these stories need to be shared, to ignite hope and help; to stir people’s hearts towards being courageously involved, to reach out and understand more. As a film maker in this day and age, I feel that television, social media and the internet are the best venues for story telling, in an effort to get our word out. This is where the idea of A Mother’s Earth was born.
A Mother’s Earth is not just about people: it's about creatures, our connection to environmental issues around the world, and recognition that we all have the power to protect and replenish the future, for all living creatures that are here and for those who are coming.
As film makers and wildlife warriors we are uniquely qualified to share these stories in a modern and accessible way. A key aspect of what we do, being the ability to show through visual narrative, how individual stories are part of the larger, universal story of global change for a more sustainable future.
A Mother's Earth creates content and media to be used as educational tools towards better understanding the planet and helping to find solutions to those problems. Whether it is using our images to create awareness of women's health issues in third world countries, providing feminine protection to anti-poaching units, or using our filming and storytelling to reveal what is going on behind elephant tourism, we strive to help these stories be heard- speaking for those who have no voice.
By sharing these stories, we strive to create a new vision and provide hope for what it means to live in a world where the children of tomorrow, our most precious resource, have a chance to grow up in a balanced planet. It is time take action: To inspire, educate and create a better world for those who are here and those who are coming...
As the founder of A Mother's Earth, you can learn more about me at my personal site: www.wildernessa.com
In a world filled with life online, I am striving to share a love of wilderness, animals and nature with my family and inspire other families to do the same. This planet needs a future with kids who are filled with a balance of nature and technology in order to create a better future for all of us. It is up to us to teach the children of tomorrow how to care and more importantly.... take care.~ Vanessa Boshoff
