Challenge

According to Tanzania Demographic Health Survey, the teenage pregnancy increased by 4 percent since 2010 by 2016 one in four adolescent aged 15-19 had begun childbearing. When she becomes pregnant her life change radically, her education ends and her job prospects diminish. She becomes more vulnerable to poverty and exclusion and her health often suffers. Most of the teenage mothers are coming from families which have below bottom quintile and are mostly not working, inactive or unemployed.

Under this project 300 teenage mothers will be provided vocational skills training on food processing and packaging, solar drying technology of fruit and vegetables, nutritious meals processing and packaging and liquid soap making.
