Happy New year-2012!

Thank you to all our donors and supporters.Year 2011 was a great year for Hope for Teenage Mothers-(Teenage
mothers Empowerment project).The teenage mums have various success stories because of
your continuous generosity to our community .

The project graduated 42 girls on Vocational class. The girls acquired various skills of beadworks, African bags making, tailoring, dressmaking, toys making and sanitary pads making. Some of the African bags and beadworks that the girls produced have been selling in the local and international markets.

Alimlim a beneficially of the sanitary pads training  said ‘I now make sanitary pads for myself and I
do not need to buy anymore.’ 
Another group of girls graduated in hairdressing coupled with Entrepreneurship training .They acquired various skills in the fields of manicure;pedicure and facial .Three of girls have opened small salons of their own. This
has enabled them to be Self -reliant and has given them a source of livelihoods for their families and children.     

 Main objectives for 2012:

  1. To empower more girls through Non –formal Education and life skills training.
  2. Encourage our supporters and donors to help us finish construction of a Multipurpose Centre for the most Vulnerable girls in Kenya.
  3. Scale up making of sanitary pads and distribute them to poor girls in the secondary and primary schools in Kenya.
