Girls going places

Knight Atieno a teen mother is going places. After joining the project one year ago, Knight has seen opportunities opening up for her. Last August she was in Uganda attending an international Youth camp. This week she is in Nairobi attending a Premier skills soccer coaching organized by the British council. ‘Am so grateful to TYSA and globalgiving for opening up opportunities for me. Initially I was hastened to join the project because of stigma associated with giving birth as a teenage. Today am confident and my future is looking bright’ Knight Atieno, a beneficiary. We look forward to your continued support to help many more girls

With Warm Regards from Knight Atieno and TYSA
