While our work is mainly with children we have come across many teenage pregnant women sleeping in the streets in very bad conditions. We have made the decision not to let these teenage girls suffer in this way. We are renting a house where they can sleep, and have some food to eat in a secured environment. We are running an education programme to help these mothers to be taught basics things about hygiene and how to look after their babies, and offer them opportunity to learn something so they can provide for their child/children.
We also provide them with food and where possible any hygiene items they may need. The long term plan is to help the mothers so that the children can be registered at one of our projects. You can donate any amount to assist these teenage mothers who have been kicked out of the home for getting pregnant.
Your donation will help to ensure that there are food and hygiene items available for when they need them, and help with any medical assistance they might require.
