About Us

Muntada Almoayielat Alohidat (Arab Single Mothers Forum – ASMF) was established in 2009 by divorced and widowed Arab women in Sakhnin to challenge the boundaries that curtail and weaken their social, economic, and cultural independence.

Member-led activities aim primarily to strengthen the leadership of divorced and widowed Arab mothers in the Galilee region, but also promote self-esteem among the children of single Arab mothers.

We further work to eradicate the stigmatization of single Arab mothers through education, advocacy, and awareness that contributes to mainstreaming their status.

In 2015, ASMF received the President’s Prize for “diverse activities to advance the status of single mothers in the Arab sector”
