Our Top Mission…  We want to, by example, show peaceful solutions to the worlds developmental issues!

Gender Equality

We promote gender equality by showcasing new versions of Role Models by utilizing the voice of Fashion Models. One of our models Elliott Sailors brings an idea of a way of showcasing gender as an expression of self, rather than just a social dynamic. See more on Elliott in the latest Tabloided Magazine.

Universal Education

UMP have partnered with the Peace Boat to bring back the exploratory element back into education. We offer global voyages 3 times a year on board the Peace Boat where we host lectures on how to develop your own Humanitarian Project from start to finish with a hands-on and tangible result to show for once back home. Apply to join the next Jan 2015 voyage to Patagonia here.

Combat HIV/AIDS

At the end of 2012, 35.3million people were living with HIV. That same year, some 2.3 million people became newly infected, and 1.7 million died of AIDS, including 230 000 children. Close to 10 million people in low- and middle-income countries were receiving antiretroviral therapy at the end of 2012. More than two-thirds of new HIV infections are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Maternal Healthcare

Maternal Healthcare is lacking in many regions of the world, UMP has not yet produced a tangible project in this area but we are encouraging suggestions. Please apply to the MAP program for the option to create with us. Apply here.

Global Partnerships

Win-win situations in Global Partnerships for Sustainability are a large part of what UMP is aiming to do, by bridging the worlds of Fashion and Commerce with Developmental work in many groups within a Nation and between Nations, UMP have successfully highlighted the ATOM project and their work to put a stop to Nuclear Weapons testing.

Reduce child mortality rates

Despite population growth, the number of deaths in children under five worldwide declined from 12.6 million in 1990 to 6.6 million in 2012, which translates into about 17,000 fewer children dying each day.
Since 2000, measles vaccines have averted over 14 million deaths.
Despite determined global progress in reducing child deaths, an increasing proportion of child deaths are in sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia. Four out of every five deaths of children under age five occur in these regions.

Environmental Sustainability

Now more than ever does it matter to care and do something about the current non-sustainable model of environmentally detrimental ways of living. Join Model Ambassador VV on her mission to save endangered species and Model Ambassador Julia Dunstall in her quest to save the National Parks of the USA. Apply to join here.

Extreme poverty and hunger

A staggering number of people still live in devastating hunger and poverty and we need to work for Peace (within and amongst each other) as vigorously as others are working on creating conflict. UMP are currently seeking projects in this areas, apply to the Model Ambassador project with your community ideas here.

We are making waves

We have been changing the way others see things

Our mission is to empower women and children in the developing world in any shape and form there is, through the distribution of  independently researched and other educational data, as well as through an association and collaboration with other similarly directed private and governmental organizations. The journey starts by firstly empowering women locally by encouraging them to find their true passion in what they wish to see for themselves and others. That desired project is then supported and taken globally in a true inward and outward approach.  Our projects therefore range from A to Z, however they always touch upon one of the fundamental MGDs and sustainable local and global communities.Our desire is to bring a sense of empowerment through education to every woman and child on the planet, in a way that is measurable by ways of them realizing a tangible goal they set out to accomplish for themselves and their community.

How we help

Enable young Fashion Models to become Role Models

By utilizing the voice of those in the spotlight we not only enable them to become beacons of opportunity but also enable young women to highlight the need for peer relationships among women and young girls to become and do more.

Provide Knowledge

Through out Triangular co-operation model we provide knowledge and education locally, globally and utilize the media and story telling element of Film and Fashion to relate an empowering message to as many possible participants as possible. We are not here to tell you what do to, more to inspire and provide a designed platform of how you can make your passion reality.

Provide Resources

Thanks to the Peace Boat we have the ability not only to provide knowledge and education but also needed physical equipment like computers, medical appliances, medical experts, clothes etc etc to help stabilize regions and save lives where these things are a pressing need.

Advocacy

UMP is not a lobbying organization but we do stand behind petitions and encourage name signatures on projects that are align with our organizations belief in the Sustainability and MDG Goals.
