Challenge

Single teenage mothers coming from very poor families face insurmountable difficulties in life. The problem for the mother and the child will include depression, sadness, frequent illness, malnutrition, sleeping disorders and low self-esteem. Teenage girls become mothers because of poverty and during times of severe natural calamities such as what happened in Leyte during Typhoon Haiyan. There is a need to provide them with financial help so they live with dignity in their communities.

Solution

The project will provide financial help to very poor single teenage mothers. The assistance will be used to provide for their hygiene needs, clothing, medicine, food and livelihood support for them and their child. Most often single teenage mothers become pariah in the community and less people will help them. There is indeed an urgent need to provide them with much needed financial support.

Long-Term Impact

Providing financial help to very poor teenage mothers means social and economic survival for both the child and the mother. A variety of problems such as malnutrition, depression, illness and low self-esteem can be solved if they only have access to financial support.
