Young girls  from the Arid areas are at risk of early marriages,Female Genetal Mutilation,cultural practices of cattle  rustling and nomadic life.This affects their education and are not able to finish their Education.You will find that the girl will start school at an early age  4 to 5 years and drop off at  year 7 or 8.This bring about a povery cycle that affects all generations from those communities.

In this regards, in partnership with the chief and the schools heads  of the  maasai communitty,Hope forTeenage Mothers  has come up with a mentorship program for girls that will start at year 6 and continue with the girls until they finish school/college.These girls will be encouraged to become the peer mentors on other young girls.This will break the recyling culture of poor  for girls education in the community.

Our organization is collecting story books and reading materials to set up a library and a computer lab in 2 schools where the girls are schooling and meeting .These libraries will be shared by the community and other students from other schools.The names of the schools are;Olooseos primary school and Ewuaso secondary school.

We welcome good ambassadors and volunteers to collect for  books and old computers for stocking this library.The girls are ready to study.

You can contact uson info@hopeforteenagemothers.org for any details .

 

Thank you for our kind support.

Happy New year 2016. 

Teen mums in our most vulnerable communities have continued to stay strong and take care of their children and manage all the household works single handedly.This gives me the courage  to keep going  and to give them more hope and support .At the end of the year 2015, I witnessed young woman complete their studies and eventually graduate in various courses  despite the challenges of motherhood.I also witnessed young women get together and  pool their resources togther in a system we call table banking.It is also in the same year I witnessed  teen mums to go back to school after  giving birth and continued with education in various schools.This is very inspiring and its what keeps us wanting to share real stories with you.

We want to thank each one of you who have enabled this success to happen.This year 2016 our young mothers are dreaming bigger and we want to make their dreams become a reality.The young women want to engage in business and also study hard.They want to get market of their products locally and internationally .This will all happen in due time.

The young mothers and their children are the future of their communities and this country.Lets keep investing in them to help realise their ecomomic empowerment  that will cut off poverty cycle .

Thank you for all your continued support.

Women empowerment beyond boarders

 

Hope for Teenage Mothers extended the training beyond boarders  and empowered the women in Tanzania .

This training was conducted in Mtwara Tanzania in partnership between T-MARC Tanzania and Hope for Teenage Mothers (HTM) as the Technical consultant (Trainer) on how to make reusable sanitary pads.The training took five days.

Trainers’ observation

It was clear that the women being trained had  no expertise on how not make reusable sanitary pads before training and were very eager to learn .The women were well equiped with the skills of trailoring and therefore it was easy to engage them in the theory and technical part of the training.

The trainers briefly  went through the topics of child care,sexuality and hygiene.It was clear that the women would have liked to have a share of more on these topic though the main training was on how to make reusable sanitary pads.The women were engaged from the beginning of the training on the sanitary pads making . Various designs were taught gradually using step by step (1-10) of the training kit for .At the end of the training the women were divided into four groups and each group was asked to make a sample of a sanitary pad using a certain design.It was obserbed that the women had understood  well and were able to perfect the final product.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who enabled this a success.
