Dear Friends,

We’d like to say a very big thank you for your support of our project!

The last few months have been busy as usual and we’re delighted to let you know that five healthy babies have been born during this time - Júlia, Samuel, Cristofer, Caiane and Ítalo. Their young mums are taking very good care of them and are regularly attending our non-formal educational workshops and group therapy sessions. These are helping the mums understand how they can best care for their newborns and how, with determination and focus, they can make positive changes in their lives.

As a result of their participation in the project, the teen mums have said they feel much higher self-esteem and better understand their abilities, potential and limits. We, the project team, aim to help the mums keep moving forward in the face of the challenges that confront them and also to continuously encourage them to head in the direction of their dreams.

For sure, the young mums and their children will have a brighter future and we are all sincerely grateful to you for your help in making this possible.

 Wishing you a Wonderful 2012!

 Many thanks, muito obrigado,

From the project team.
