Tokyo New Mothers Group needs YOU!

We have many new and exciting changes planned over the coming months for TNMG!

To start with, we are looking into updating our site and making it more user-friendly and accessible all to mothers, both new and experienced, out there. To do this, we need to raise funds! And we need you! We will be holding our first fundraising event in October (more of which we will tell you about later) and we are looking for more volunteers to help us make this event a success. We are holding the first fundraising meeting for this on August 1st, so if you want to join in the organizing fun, email us!

Another new system we are setting up is our Mentor scheme. This is going to be a scheme specifically for anyone new to Tokyo or new to motherhood. We are looking for more of our members to become mentors: to meet, support and encourage new mothers as they embark upon their "Tokyo new mother" journey. We know you all have a lot to offer and invaluable experience to share, so please email us if you would like to get involved! The first meeting for this is July 30th.

We will continue to update you with more information as our changes start to happen. There are some great ideas in the pieplines that we hope to get off the ground, AND if you have any ideas of your own that you'd like to see flourish or if you feel you have something to offer us in terms of help, we'd love to hear from you!
Remember, TNMG is YOUR group so let's all work together to make it the best it can be!
