Mothers Of Invention - Changing DC’s Food System | Toyota

Lauren Shweder-Biel launched DC Greens in 2009 to start a farmer’s market, but that idea quickly grew into an organization that connects communities across Washington, D.C., to healthy food. Its efforts include a program in which clinic doctors write prescriptions for fruits and vegetables that can be filled at local famer’s markets, and the Growing Gardens Teachers program, which trains educators to run integrated school garden programs. Recognizing their power and position to make a broader impact, she says, has been “exciting.” Since its inception in 2012, Toyota has cultivated the Toyota Mothers of Invention program by not only awarding more than $1 million to these women-led companies with Driving Solutions grants, but also facilitating networking opportunities, building relevant connections, and providing access to intellectual capital to help their organizations go places. These women, who are leading the charge to work on issues like homelessness, education, food, water, energy, and more, come from all over the world, and are using innovation to create lasting and sustainable impact.

Mothers Of Invention - Clean Water During Disasters | Toyota

In 2014, Tricia Compas-Markman’s efforts to bring clean water to those in need earned her recognition as a Toyota Mother of Invention. Since then, she and her company, DayOne Response, have worked to address the worldwide need for clean, potable water by developing a 10-liter backpack that, using a Procter & Gamble purifying packet, can quickly render dirty water safe for drinking. She and DayOne Response have responded to several disasters, including typhoons in Southeast Asia and seasonal rain and cholera outbreaks in West Africa. Since its inception in 2012, Toyota has cultivated the Toyota Mothers of Invention program by not only awarding more than $1 million to these women-led companies with Driving Solutions grants, but also facilitating networking opportunities, building relevant connections, and providing access to intellectual capital to help their organizations go places.

Mothers Of Invention - Kids Can Make a Difference | Toyota

Talia Leman and her organization, RandomKid, prove that when kids work together, they can change the world. Leman started her organization in 2005, when she was just 10, with a single worthy goal: to raise money for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Her efforts while trick-or-treating for Halloween attracted national attention and started a global youth movement that has raised more than $11 million. RandomKid used those funds to construct homes, address children’s health issues and build a school in Cambodia. Since its inception in 2012, Toyota has cultivated the Toyota Mothers of Invention program by not only awarding more than $1 million to these women-led companies with Driving Solutions grants, but also facilitating networking opportunities, building relevant connections, and providing access to intellectual capital to help their organizations go places.
