Introducing Our New Teen Health Program

By Amy Maglio | Executive Director

WGEP High School Scholars
WGEP High School Scholars

We are proud to introduce our newest program in Senegal, the Teenage Pregnancy Prevention and Family Planning Program! 

This program was implemented earlier this year with the goal of empowering our scholars to make healthy reproductive choices. The program's ultimate goal is to reduce the overall number of teenage pregnancies, thus helping girls stay in school and continue their studies.This year, the program is serving 99 students across five grade levels. Workshop discussion topics are focusing on puberty, sexually transmitted diseases, contraception and healthy relationships. We hope to grow the program next year in order to reach even more young women!

At our scholars' request, we have also been working to integrate more mental health activities into our programs. As a result, 41 middle school & high school scholars were recently able to meet with 4 experienced professional counselors. Our goal is to provide moral support to our scholars who are having difficulties so that they can have the tools and support to stay in school and succeed. 

Thank you for supporting important WGEP initiatives like the Teenage Pregnancy Prevention and Family Planning Program!
