I am happy to announce the Call for Application for Merck Foundation Fashion Awards “More Than a Mother” 2021 for African countries.
All Fashion students and designers are invited to create and share designs that deliver strong and influential messages to raise awareness about infertility prevention, Breaking Infertility Stigma and Empowering girls and women through education.
No designer has ever, or would ever, say that he or she wanted to make things difficult for women. The fashion industry has already got enough flakes for being superficial. Let’s change this perception and create a meaningful fashion trend aiming to educate our communities that Fertility is a Shared Responsibility.
I love fashion and I strongly believe that we will be able to select a creative design or designs that Men and/or Women would be proud to wear to show their contribution toward breaking the infertility stigma in their communities, villages, cities, across Africa and the rest of the world.
Designers it’s time to showcase your talent and contribute towards making a difference in society with your unique creations.
Senator, Dr. Rasha Kelej,
CEO of Merck Foundation
President of 'Merck Foundation More Than a Mother'
