Protection of young girls from pregnany

Protection of young girls from pregnancy through vocational skills

Education officer Nelson Ayo claimed that over 90,000 girls under 18 have got pregnant during the Covid-19 period when they were not going to school.

Education Minister Janet Museveni urged parents to guard their daughters. “I will not get tired of reminding you (parents) to always keep an eye on your daughters so that they do not get pregnant during this lockdown,” she said.

This has been the story since the Covid-19 pandemic caused the closure of schools for nearly 2 years. Parents have been very busy trying to make ends meet to feed their families and provide other basic needs.

At Another Hope Children’s Ministries one of our core values is to protect children. We  protect children by keeping them engaged with gainful skills. We started efforts of raising funds to help skill the girl child, and we are grateful to you who heard our cry for help.

In early March 2020 as schools were closed, we managed to get some girls both at our children’s home and from the community and trained them with vocational skills such as hairdressing and cosmetology, fashion design and tailoring, cookery, bakery and pastry. The first group had 7 girls, and all of them were awarded with certificates. That was from May to August 2020.

The next group was trained in December 2020, and it had eleven girls. All these were from the community with 9 doing hair dressing, 1 in cookery and 1 in tailoring. Also in 2021 ,we were able to skill another group of 6 girls in April and toward the end of 2021 we managed to skill 8 more girls. Keeping these girls engaged gives them time to focus and at least learn something instead of being idle which would sometimes result into early pregnancies.

With your generosity, we have managed to protect 32 girls from early pregnancies and all this was possible because of your generosity. We are so grateful for your support, and the girls and their parents are also grateful.

May God richly bless each of you and your families.
