Summary

This project will help provide 450 vulnerable and economically challenged teenage mothers residing in rural communities who are significantly affected by the Coronavirus Disease outbreak in Liberia with food and free medical support services. In a country where more than 50% of the population lives under USD1/day, teenage mothers and their children are at significant risk of hunger, sickness, and homelessness due to lack of adequate support as a result of the Coronavirus disease outbreak.

Challenge

There is an alarming rate of vulnerable and at-risk teenage mothers in rural communities in Liberia. According to the Government of Liberia, there are about 13,457 vulnerable and economically challenged teenaged mothers who are currently monitored by the Government of Liberia in rural communities across the country. According to a local report, these teenage mothers are in deplorable condition as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. This project will support 350 teenaged mothers.

Solution

SCIDA-Liberia will help to provide nutrition, medicine, and psychosocial support to vulnerable children and teenage mothers. These teenagers will be trained in small business management, nutrition, and child care services. The adolescent mother will then be encouraged to share their experience and lesson learned with their peers in their communities. The project will also rent a shelter for those homeless teenage mothers across the country.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide food, medicine, and psychosocial support to 350 vulnerable and marginalized teenage mothers and their children as well as strengthening their capacity to be self-dependent. About 150 highly vulnerable and marginalized are placed in improved homes for three years and more. About 350 teenage mothers received improved small business management training, and are using these skills to improve their livelihood and wellbeing.
