This shows that we still have a lot of work to do in this communities..we are their agent of change. We should keep on interacting with them for a change.

The parents' representative thanked Social Development Intermational, Global Giving and The Girl Effect Fund for work well done. The teenage mothers expressed their sincere thanks to all those who have in one way or the other must have contributed to their new sense of reasoning especially Global Giving, The Girl Effcet fund and Social Development International team in Cameroon.

They claimed they have been empowered and we believe them from the sketches,  sense of humor and reasoning compare to when we first met them. They expressed  that , we continued the support we started in their new life and business development endeavours they so cherished.
