Project #1802

Uplifting Teen Mothers in Kenya

by Grassroots Empowerment Initiative (GEMINI)

Hi again,

Just received financial summaries for our projects and wanted to share some of them with you, our very loyal supporter.

Its been a tough year for our teen mums: many dropped from school, hundreds are still suffering from side-effects of backstreet abortion.

But many are reaping the benfits of enrolling in our program. Thanks to you, we have been able to reach to over 82 girls this year alone.

There is still some distance to go but I know with your help, the future is bright...

Please read the attached summary and make that donation, however small. Because to us, small is gigantic...!


Hi everyone,

On behalf of all the teen mums that GEMINI supports, I'd like to sincerely thank each one of you that continues to support us.

Our organization is taking part in the Everyone can Win challenge currently running on GlobalGiving.

We need to mobilize as many donors as we can in the next couple of weeks.

I know we can bank on your consistent support. We really need your donations again this time round...

We will be posting some observations from some of our beneficiaries in the coming days...we hope you will have time to read them

Thanks so much and please keep in touch!! (And let's win this challenge together!!)

Hi pals!!

Long time..hope you are all fine.

I just wanted to share a letter I received from Doreen, a project beneficiary who is now self-dependent.

When she joined us, she had just given birth to a bouncing baby girl though she had been expelled from school.

She attended our Teen Mum program and was trained as a tailoring designer. With a small start-up capital of $200 from GlobalGiving, Doreen has finally made it!!

Read her exciting story. Its just one among many that will be coming your way.

We appreciate all your continued support and as usual, keep those comments and questions coming.

Enjoy your reading!!


Dear friends,

GEMINI has always tried to keep you informed of how your donations are being spent. Every step of the way! The aim is to make you own part of the process and feel actively involved in empowering poor communities.

We thank all of you for your continued support.

After the post-election violence in Kenya, a lot of women/girls were, unfortunately, sexually abused. Most continue to languish in camps, with little medical and psychological support.

With your donations, we responded to the crisis. Now that its over, we need to reach out to all the survivors of sexual violence with confidential, free HIV testing.

We are carrying out a Special Appeal that seeks to mobilize funds to set up a specialized VCT center that will provide women/girls with these services.

But we need you help.

We are kindly requesting you to read the attached newsletter that provides some background information on this very important project.

And we are also requesting you to act and make a donation to any of GEMINI projects to enable us accomplish our goal.

Thanks so much and please, remember, any donation will be highly appreciate.


Beatrice is a typical teen mum: confused, angry and disorriented. She joined our program a few months ago, her 4-month daughter strapped on her back.

"This is not the end of life," she told me a few days ago.

Well, with your support, Beatrice, and a host of other teen mums, have a second chance in life.

Go on, read her story.
