Let us support girls in Kenya to go to school

Teenage pregnancy has become an epidemic phenomenon with the recent statistics showing that Kenya has the highest levels of teenage pregnancies of 3 in every 10 girls between the ages of 13 years to 18years. The girls are found in the upper primary and secondary school. After giving birth, these girls become butts of distasteful jokes and these results to stigmatization and as already observed, majority of these girls have their education terminated. The increase of school teenage drop outs also contributes to poverty, insecurity, early parenthoods and early marriages just to mention a few. It is for these reasons that Hope for teenage mothers (HTM) came up with programs to address some of their needs in the community that includes empowerment through sustainable relevant skills and back to school programs. Our main focus is stigma removal and restoration of the lost hope and self esteem to the young mothers so that they can have a normal life again. To date HTM has changed the lives of over 600 families through your kind support. The months of November and December 2012 in HTM’s Calendar is for fundraising to build a Multipurpose boarding school for the most Vulnerable girls that would accommodate 300 to 500 girls. The school will help those very poor girls from poor communities and enable them access education. Thank you for your kind support to this project. How can we work together to attract a wider support?
