New Opportunity for Young Mothers

We are thrilled with the support you are according us in empowering our beneficiaries. Every day teens are victims of violations against their human rights. At TAGS we rescue expectant girls (some are victims of forced migration) and they are provided with accommodation, psychosocial support, safe motherhood and medical care. We have initiated a program for our young mothers where they can acquire vocational skills while raising their babies. There is someone who is watching over their babies while they go to class and the babies are breastfed before going to class, during tea break and at lunch time. After classes they take care of their children. We have provided them with two rooms at the institute; one is their bedroom and the other is a room where their babies can play. At the institute, the cook prepares balanced meals for the young mothers and their babies.

Our rehabilitation process will be holistic with this new opportunity as transition from TAGS to skills training then reintegration to the community for our young mothers. It has been a challenge equipping these young mothers with skills because there are very few institutions in our country that allow students in their institution with babies. These babies are still breastfeeding and we felt that as much as we want their mothers to get skills we also have to act in the best interest of their babies. With this program they will be economically empowered to cater for their needs and those of their babies and be a voice for tomorrow to empower other young mothers going through the same circumstances.

“I am so excited to be able to learn and raise my son at the same time. I really appreciate Talia Agler Girls Shelter for walking with me from the time I was defiled, during pregnancy, Childbirth and the continued support to me and my baby. I have no relative in Kenya and TAGS has been my family.” Sophie (Not her real name) a victim of forced Migration and Sexual Abuse.

At the institute they will undergo a two months pre-training course which entails communication skills, labor education, entrepreneurship and life skills. They will later choose courses of their interest and continue with their studies.

Statistics show that Kenya is one of the countries with a large number of adolescent pregnancies globally. Several factors, including peer pressure, rape, cultural practices, lack of sexual awareness and abuse of alcohol and drugs have been attributed to teenage pregnancies, but the biggest association is with poverty.
