Challenge

Sexual rape for girl's children is a pandemic that must be stopped. Pregnancy among teenage girls, as a result, indicates an increase from 6.1 to 7.3 per cent according to the demographic and health survey 2014/2015, an issue that nobody should turn a blind eye to. This leads to undesirable consequences such as children on the street,child abandonment, child marriages, child labor, diseases, school dropouts etc. The project makes it urgent to save 60 teen mothers from possible effects.

Solution

HELP A CHILD INITIATIVE has adopted the "Caring, Healing and Teaching" framework where teen mothers and their babies are provided with clinical care & basic needs, e.g. food, clothing,safer residential care, medical insurance etc. Children's mothers are given psycho-social sessions, trained in sexual and reproductive health, child right& HIV/AIDS. They are also taught entrepreneurship, leadership skills and given free vocational education and supported to start up income generating activity.

Long-Term Impact

Giving them Care and Education builds in them hope. it provides survivors of sexual abuse with new future opportunities and a shift in the lifestyle that made them vulnerable. It empowers to be bold with their stories to help prevent abuse to other women and girls. We hope that through the "caring, healing, and teaching" framework, we are able to help end the cycle of abuse for a young girl, her family, and her community.
