Dear Friends and Donors,

This  past  Monday  July 4, 2011, three  of our staff members conducted a meeting at the Tole Presbyterian church where 40 teenage mothers came together with Social Development International staff.  After a brief session of self-motivation lead by the singing of local songs, our participant mothers selected the common skills areas present amongst them.  The result of this input was the formation of 5 different groups reflecting their envisage careers as follows:

  • Hair dressers
  • Tailors
  • Students
  • Small business traders
  • ICT entrepreneurs

 

Our next step on the agenda is for them to elect their group leaders in a democratic approach by conduction elections for the following positions:

President, vice-president, secretary general, financial secretary and treasurer.

With this initiative we hope to encourage them in the advocacy of their rights and the access to basic services within the country.
