La Leche League International’s (LLLI) mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, education, information, and encouragement and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother. LLLI was founded in 1956 by seven women who wanted to make breastfeeding easier and more rewarding for both mother and child. The organization offers information and encouragement-primarily through personal help-to those women who want to breastfeed their babies. La Leche League is active in 65 countries and territories, reaching more than 300,000 mothers monthly through a network of more than 7,000 accredited leaders who work on a volunteer basis.
