Challenge

Statistics show that over 75% of school drop outs among girls in Uganda is due to teenage pregnancies.The Government of Uganda Vision 2040 anticipates transforming Uganda to a middle class economy, the goal is deeply reliant on an emerging generation of young people that can successfully contribute to a productive society.

Solution

Schools will organize competitions in music, dance and drama that educate youth on dangers of teenage pregnancies.Winning schools will be given gifts.Opinion leaders will be invited to attend. The activity is also intended at improving the parent/guardian's role in their capacity to provide a supportive environment, and to provide teachers with skills to guide and protect young girls from avoiding teenage pregnancy.

Long-Term Impact

Community leaders will be involved in teenage pregnancy prevention. The project's success in working with various community stakeholders to help with teenage pregnancy prevention has been an enriching and impact experience in the communities we have worked with.
