Join us to continue providing education to 11 teenage mothers in Chile who, despite their situation, are willing to continue studying and to achieve better future prospects by developing their self-esteem through quality education in a safe environment based on our Christian values of justice, respect and solidarity. Your donations goes towards school fees, learning materials, guidance and support for their children
These 11 teenage women, who are already mothers or are pregnant, present difficulties in the educational and family dimensions and in the insertion in the labor world. The lack of networks, poverty and lack of opportunities in general leads them to prioritize work over studies. The condition of teenage pregnancy and single maternity negatively affect the possibilities of studying and working, and thus, the development of their children
As a Jesuit organization, we consider education as a fundamental value in the development of people. Investment in women and girls is a proven way to eliminate the cycle of poverty, that is why Hogar de Cristo, with your support, will provide complete education to these women and will also give help for their children with love and dignity. The school assess on a case-by-case basis what support tools the girls need so that they do not drop out of school.
Young mothers will receive a quality education that will enable them to development themselves and to have better future prospects. Ultimately, it will lift their families and provide them with the tools to be out of poverty.
