Challenge

In Luwero District, 1 in every 5 teens is a mother or expecting their first baby. 66% of these teens have contracted HIV, more than 25% have unmet need for family planning. They have dropped out of school, are single parents and have no means of supporting themselves and their babies. YETU will through the project support each teen mother to start an enterprise from which they can get an income to meet their basic needs, support their babies and engage in the economic development of Luwero.

Solution

YETU conducts financial literacy classes, gives micro-credit and coaches teen mothers to start and grow micro-enterprises. With a stable and sustainable income, teen mothers meet their basic needs and those of their babies which include health care, food, education and housing. The teen mothers are also empowered to actively participate in the economic activities of their communities.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 100 teen mothers about financial management, support them to develop and implement enterprising ideas and coach them to grow these enterprises. With a stable and sustainable source of income, teen mums will provide their basic needs, care for their babies and benefit the economy development of their communities.
