Hope for Teenage Mothers (HTM) thanks our donors for the continued support. With your support Hope for Teenage Mothers (HTM) has graduated another group of girls (32) in both entrepreneurship training and hairdressing classes in March and April 2011.

’’I could not have done it without your support. Now I know I can get a good job and my child can get food,’’ said Aisha on graduation day. The previous graduate groups of girls have now embarked on money making business in bead works, cloth printing and bags making. Last month the group held an exhibition competition with other small community groups. The mothers displayed their handmade items, and we saw the teenage mums sell off most of their items and win a second place trophy for the ‘most creative and organized group’. The teenage mothers are becoming more innovative and this has improved their livelihood. This is all because of your generous support and feedback. We wish to encourage you to help us with more ideas so that our teenage mothers can become more empowered and thus be able to support their children. All your feedback is most encouraged. Thank you again for your continued support.
