Uplifting Teen Mothers in Kenya

Our girls made it!!

A few months ago, we reported that we were providing special academic tutoring and extra classes to 12 girls who had been suspended from school due to pregnancy.

Well, the jury is now in. Their verdict? 8 of the girls passed their exams with over 350 points out of a possible 500!! The rest managed a respectable average of 240 points.

"It was tough..and in my condition, I was not sure I could think straight!!" Says Caro, one of the students.

"Its not yet over...I'm preparing myself for secondary exams and this time, I promise I won't mess around!" She adds, a smile on her face.

Two of the girls have already given birth to bouncing babies.

"I was tempted to call my baby GlobalGiving Atieno!" quips Benta, one of the teen mothers. ''I appreciate all the text books, exam papers and tuition that I received courtesy of all of you at GlobalGiving."

At GEMINI, we can only say a sincere Thank You for all your continued support, confidence in us and let's keep the fire burning.
