Uplifting Teen Mothers in Kenya

Your donations mend broken hearts!!


Our projects don't include mending broken hearts...but after listening to Lynette, we are currently preparing to do exactly that: mend her heart!

She was jilted by her lover, left at the alter with a 6-month pregnancy...and now she is crestfallen, dejected and even considered committing suicide.

One of the things we will be doing this quarter will be providing training to Lynette and a handful of other teen mums.

We also plan to open a new bakery after the previous one was negatively affected during the post-election violence last year.

With your continued support, we hope to embark on a social marketing campaign that will reduce teen pregnancy and give more hope to affected families.

Kindly read Lynette's story and let us know your thoughts. As usual, your feedback is always appreciated!!
