Children Rejoice

On 20th October 200, children of Teenage mothers and a rare opportunity to enjoy and have fun!!! Over 50 kids together with the rest of the children from the community spend an afternoon learning gymnastics, playing and ride old tyres.

Two volunteers form Denmark, Rasmus and Camilla spend three weeks with the teenage mothers, their children and local community in supporting the project. They offered key live skills to the children.

This project supports 150 teenage orphaned mothers to get education, support them to start Income generating activities e.g. keeping cows for milk and offer safe space for 30 children of teenage mothers as their mothers go to school to continue with education.

Majority of the teenage orphaned mothers are in primary school, few in secondary school and others in vocational training centers. So far 25 girls have graduated and are making their own living and supporting their own children.

70 of the Teenage mothers were affected by the post election violence which affected the country early this year. Most of them were in the Internally Displaced Camps and few were accommodated in homes. This disrupted the projected so much. We are now trying to reorganize and offer them much needed support.

Children have no food and these makes the mothers to go looking for work in order to feed the children. This has affected school attendance.

“I can not go to school and leave my child hungry. I would prefer to go and look for food first the school later” Mercy

Your 10 US$ will feed one child for 14 days as the mother goes to school.
