Children enjoy safe space at tysa

Every weekend, over 10 teen mothers' children come with their parents to the sports or training programme. This was not possible a few years ago before this project started. ' I used to fear and feel shy carrying my baby to the sports or meetings. The boys used to tease me and say that I am a parent. Nowdays I dont fear anything' Dorothy, a teen mother.

Children enjoy playing together at the field as their mothers participate in various activities at the TYSA girls resource centre or playing football.

As an organization, we are happy that the community has also appreciated the project which is helping the teen mothers go back to school and gain education. 'This project has helped my daughter complete secondary education and is now joining college. I stayed with her son for two years' Mum Nancy, (a beneficiary)

We do appreciate your continued donations which help to feed children of teen mothers, offer medical care and pay school fees for the teen mothers. Donate now to support the education of teen mothers as they open school on 3rd May 2010
