19 teen mothers provided with health services

Our process of rehabilitation consist of receiving and accommodating homeless children, former street children and teen mothers and girls victims of rape and other types of violence committed in the home and on the street.

In this quarter, 19 teen mothers newly admitted in the center, were provided with health checks up and treatment and psychosocial support with their babies. As they had been living on the street, the majority are suffering with HIV/AIDS and other sexual transmission infections, malnutrition and other chronic diseases which we are working hard on to address all these health related issues.

We remain convinced that the street children deserve the same rights as others. This had been highlighted in our program and practices. The street children deserve right to safe home, right to education, right to protected against violence, right to health care, right to be cared about in the community and family, right to feel loved, right to a childhood among others. This is why at Centre Marembo, we tirelessly continued to support these children by empowering them through our various programs and projects basing on five key pillars: Health and wellbeing, Education, Empowerment, Access to justice and social reintegration.

Young people today, especially the victims of violence and street children, face many challenges including teenage pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, and sexual and gender based violence. These have often affected young people’s potential and momentum. To address this problem, we have been working with our trained youth to raise awareness on health issues among our children and they regularly have health sessions as prevention approach. In the last three months, at least 42.2 % of the prevention and awareness sessions carried out were on sexual and reproductive health, 30.3 % on Family planning and 12.5 % of the séances were covered on nutrition.
