Teen mothers after Meeting with SDI staff in Tole
Dear Friends and Donors,
This past Monday July 4, 2011, three of our staff members conducted a meeting at the Tole Presbyterian church where 40 teenage mothers came together with Social Development International staff. After a brief session of self-motivation lead by the singing of local songs, our participant mothers selected the common skills areas present amongst them. The result of this input was the formation of 5 different groups reflecting their envisage careers as follows:
Small business traders
Our next step on the agenda is for them to elect their group leaders in a democratic approach by conduction elections for the following positions:
President, vice-president, secretary general, financial secretary and treasurer.
With this initiative we hope to encourage them in the advocacy of their rights and the access to basic services within the country.
