Support teenage mothers with basic needs in Uganda

A microproject by Mountains of hope childrens ministries
Support teenage mothers with basic needs in Uganda


Each year, more than 50 teenage girls give birth in Mpigi District. For many, it's a time of tension as some don't have some one to talk to them. We work with communities to support pregnant girls to improve early pregnancy outcomes, child health development and economic self-sufficiency. This project will provide birth kits, psychosocial support and basic necessities to support the abandoned vulnerable girls in our community in all through the process of pregnancy, birth and child development

monthly donors


There are over 20,000 teenage mothers country-wide and over 500 in Mpigi District who need assistance of various categories as they cannot cope up with circumstances and responsibilities of raising their children.Majority of pregnant mothers do not have separate counseling centers in government health centers.The country lacks an institution that takes care of teenage mothers and their children so that they can grow into responsible citizens.


The project has set up a separate counseling room in the health center, separate from that of adults, a separate medical psychologist and counselor will be deployed to talk to young pregnant mothers to prepare them for an appropriate safe delivery, the project will also buy birth kits for the girls since most of these girls have been sent out of home and stigmatized as a punishment for the actions they did so no one cares about them.

Long-Term Impact

The project has worked with stakeholders, partners ,well wishes, donors and the government of Uganda to improve the quality of life for stigmatized and marginalized teenage mothers, their children, families and communities through capacity building, counseling, nutritional support ,non-formal training, legal representation and human rights upholding.
