Challenge

Sub-Saharan Africa faces great educational and developmental challenges with regard to illiterate and under-educated youth and adults. In Kenya, less than 50% of girls complete primary and successfully enroll in secondary education. In Kiandutu slums we have increased number of teenage mothers and adolescent girls who are unable to continue with their education. The teenage mothers struggle to raise their kids and provide for themselves.

Solution

The project provides school fees and school learning materials(books, bags, uniforms). The teenage mothers will be trained on entrepreneurship and then provided with capital start up to enhance their livelihoods. The project will also provide sanitary towels to majority because they cannot afford, The girls will be trained on life skills so that they are able to make informed life choices.

Long-Term Impact

Through educational support, leadership and life skills training and entrepreneurship training and support the girls and teenage mothers will be empowered to succeed in life. They will become the agent of social change in their community and break the cycle of poverty and depending on others.
