Hi! We are an organization of international aid workers, working in catastrophe response, emergency aid, disaster relief, development work, human rights etc. etc… Our jobs take us to the most dangerous and remote locations on earth and we are strongly committed to improving livelihoods.
In this line of work, it’s very difficult to have a family. We are some of the very few women in aid work who have children. This is not easy. We have to raise our children in unusual environments or travel often and far away from our babies.
AidMamas was founded to build a network where we support one another, give advice, counseling, and network professionally.
We're nomadic, we're resourceful, we're committed - both with our work and with our families.
We would love a logo that shows this unique and difficult combination: the aid worker and being a mom.
We don't like the red crosses (first aid style)...too narrow definition of what we do.
We don't like anything overly effeminate (e.g. excessive pink or purple, or hearts)
We don't want anything too complex/too much detail, that won't translate well into black and white silhouette.
We would prefer to avoid any racially specific logos (e.g. with faces of white/european women) because we are a very diverse bunch.
Think Amazonian warrior mother...not luvey duvey gushy mother :)
