Ambitious Lifeline for Teen Mothers

Hi friends!

In Kenya, you could correctly group stigma in the same league as racism or apartheid. The net effect is the same.

But for teen mothers, it is even worse. Young girls, barely 13, are sexually abused every day, raped and left for dead. Our society, for whatever reasons, blames them!

Our project has been reaching out to such abused girls, providing them with hope by expanding their life choices. We have just started fundraising for some start-up capital to enable a group of 15 girls launch an ambitious income-generating project.

It involves baking cookies, fresh fruit juice, yoghurt and selling fresh milk.

We are hoping that this will provide the girls and their families with daily income and thus empower both their economic and social status.

It is our hope that you will join us in sourcing for the start-up funds and thus give these bold girls a lifeline to restart their lives once again.

Thanks for always siding by us!!
