Sihah Waris Sheikh’s tech-start up ‘Rise Mom’ is a digital platform that allows working mothers to connect with their kids, while at work. She hopes to create the perfect product to meet the demands of motherhood and development for women in careers.
‘Rise Mom’ aims to ease the working mother’s anxiety about leaving her children under someone else’s care. The startup gives mothers a peace of mind, knowing their child is in incredible care with the ‘Rise Mom’ day-care service with full transparency. What makes this service different from others is that mothers can be in communication all the time; bridging the gap between working mothers and day care centers. ‘Rise Mom’ also serves as a social platform for working parents and women in Pakistan through its blog, forum, and daycare provider database. This provides communication between the community that wants to raise its children right but also, wishes to focus on professional careers.
The easily accessible, online, phone application allows mothers to stay connected 24-7. From monitoring meals and naps to being updated on their children’s activities through status updates, live video, pictures and more. The platform is a visual and auditory way to ensure mothers can keep an eye on their child’s well-being.
With companies in Pakistan pressing for empowering women in the workforce, 60% decide to leave when they have children. ‘Rise Mom’ wants to prove that mothers can work and also be there for their children while in the office, simply with the press of a button.
