Challenge

In developing countries, newborns from mothers under 20 years old face a risk of prenatal or early death 50% higher than those born from women aged 20-29; and are especially prone to malnutrition. They are also more likely to have low birthweight and to suffer domestic violence, causing long-term effects such as breathing, neurologic and gastrointestinal problems, and cognitive issues. Young mothers often lack support from their partners and families, hindering the creation of affective bonds.

Solution

Fundacion Juanfe contributes to the comprehensive development of 240 babies born to teenage mothers by providing professional care at the Center for Comprehensive Child Development. Professionals care for children and provide them with daily snacks and lunches that improve their nutrition, as well as all the necessary implements for their hygiene and stimulation.

Long-Term Impact

Children attended at the Center grow up healthy and avoid respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases, also earning adequate nutritional conditions. As their mothers learn about humanized parenting, they make certain the children grow up in an environment of well-being and affection, while ensuring the continuity of their good health. In the long run, these children have better chances to achieve good results at school and avoid dropout, being less likely to fall into the hands of criminal network
