Our Project Train 100 girls its important to note that the the teen mothers have shown consistence and keenness in the learning process and work so far.
The instructor has also highlighted there are at times she has allowed them to offer some services to customers directly to monitor their learning progress which has brought forth promising results. Their self-esteem, self-awareness and confidence has improved impeccably in the long ran. In addition, they have improved their communications skills and expertise in hairdressing. One of the teen mothers said “I have become so good in cornrows braiding skill, these is just enough for me to supply to the local hair salons and beauty shops and earn a living for myself and my child”.
One of the teen mothers however went for a maternity leave and she developed complications during delivery and had to undergo caesarean section. She gave birth to a baby boy who in 1 months’ time develop hydrocephalus and unfortunately the infant died after being referred to several hospitals and the condition couldn’t be treated.
Indeed the 100girls program is working and bringing hope to teenage mothers.
We require your donations especially as we go into the festive season so that we can best plan fo 2020 as we plan to enroll new teenage mothers in the programme.

Majority of the teenage mothers joined the training with no experience in this field and only of the them had a talent in braiding but had no professional training on hair dressing. At the orientation sessions the young women had very low self esteem and lacked confidence and self-awareness. There was need to enhance their self esteem and confidence within themselves by encouraging group discussions to share their experiences and challenges as teen mothers.
