Summary

This project is Empowering 150 teenage mothers by giving them life skills training and an opportunity to go back to school, thus giving them their lives back and economically empowering them.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This project addresses underage pregnancy, hunger, HIV/AIDS, poverty, and illiteracy in the Mukuru slum East of Nairobi, Kenya. Hope for teenage mothers offers teenage mums economic empowerment, self esteem, education and life skills. Quote from teenage mother in program: "My parents threw me out of the house and tore my books after I became pregnant while I was in school. I came to Mukuru slum to look for shelter. Hope for teenage mothers are helping me get my life back."

How will this project solve this problem?

Hope for Teenage Mothers empowers teenage mothers through basic skills training, Accelerated Learning, Peer Education, Hairdressing, Cookery and Microfinance training. Our assessment has found that these community programmes have an immediate impact.

Potential Long Term Impact
