Challenge

Teen pregnancy is a health and development issue that is undermining adolescent girls' lives in Rwanda and teen mothers are subject to higher risk of dropping out of school, getting involved in unpaid exploitative work, diminished long-term wage earning, low self-esteem, social isolation and lack of safety nets. Teen Mothers Integrated will provide vocational training skills considering employable skills and financial literacy to enable teen mothers become agents of change in their communities.

Solution

Selection of the most vulnerable teen mothers, enrollment of teen mothers in vocational training centres, grouping them based on their chosen skill, training teen mothers on financial literacy, personal development, formation of saving groups of teen mothers, financial linkages with micro-finance institutions, business coaching, negotiation of internships for teen mothers after vocational training and mentorship of the teen mothers for potential growth and development.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support 120 teen mothers allowing them to rise out of unpaid exploitative work, diminished long-term wage earning, low self-esteem and social isolation and then enable them to become agents of change through the increase of self-esteem, employability and market access. Their empowerment will halt the cyclical teen pregnancies and domestic violence faced in households and then contribute to well being of teen mothers and their kids and other families members.
