Challenge

Every year, some 3.9 million girls aged 15 to 19 years undergo unsafe abortions globally. Uganda has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in Sub-Saharan Africa with over 25% pregnancies among teenagers registered every year. Majority of the girls undergo unsafe abortions because they are scared and/or poor. This project will offer antenatal, scan and medical care, temporary shelter, meals, counselling, life skills and vocational classes to 100 pregnant teen girls from all over Uganda.

Solution

This project will offer antenatal, scan and medical care, temporary shelter, meals, counselling, life skills and vocational classes to 100 pregnant teen girls from all over Uganda. The young mothers will deliver under sterile medical conditions under the supervision of skilled personnel. The young mothers are also taught life skills and vocational programs which will ensure an improved quality of living for mother, child and the community once they leave Wakisa Ministries and go back home.

Long-Term Impact

The project will enable 100 pregnant teen girls have access to a better quality of life after delivering the babies. This will be from the life skills and vocational classes taught at the centre to improve the livelihood in their communities.
