As you may know the vocational class just came from a three weeks holiday. The teenage mums have good news of working with mentors who are training them on making hand bags, bead works, table clothes table mats ,pillow cases and bed covers. This innovativeness will enable the teenage mothers get a livelihood from the sales of the items they are making. The sales will be to the local supermarkets, exhibitions centers and also international markets.

15 girls are learning hairdressing course. This will take six months. This course have become popular with the teenage mothers as they can go for non formal education classes in the morning and then join the other class in the afternoon. At the end of the course the teenage mums will have skills of hairdressing and they can either start off their own saloon shops or get an attachment to the existing saloons and at the same time have education.

As I look back on all we have achieved over the last Eight months of the year, I want to thank you for your steadfast commitment to our work .None of what we have done would have been possible without you. Let us know how better we could do to change the lives of these teenage mothers and their children.
