Challenge

Many girls get pregnant in school and become teenage mothers. Some girls are trafficked to towns for domestic work and may be abused. Some girls go for marriage at indecisive young age and decide to leave. Some do not use contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancy and Sexually transmitted diseases. Many of them are abandoned to themselves. Most are orphans or vulnerable and have nobody to support them. They are abandoned and CAMGEW identify them and give them hope by training them.

Solution

CAMGEW has trained these teenage mothers and youths and they need to put their skills to use to create jobs for themselves and others, serve their people, raise income and improve on their lives. Buying of machines for them will help them set entrepreneur businesses where they can train others and take care of themselves and their children. These machines are more expensive and difficult for them to afford. They lack support from parents and community. CAMGEW want them to be change makers.

Long-Term Impact

The teenage mothers and youths will be employed and create jobs for others as they will serve as trainers-of-trainers and are models. These teenage mothers and youths will render services to the community with their skills and take care of their children, improve on their health and nutrition and become economically empowered. About 200 lives will be impacted considering that they have extended families that depend on us. More than 500 community members will benefit from their services.
