SDI’s current projects with Global Giving:

Teaching Entrepreneurship and Advocacy to 100 Teen Mothers in Cameroon.

This project will enable 100 teen mothers to develop themselves as entrepreneurs and community leaders and to strengthen their families and communities by ensuring that public policies consider their experience and input. With entrepreneurship, leadership, medical care coverage, micro credit and child care practices, teen mothers’ productivity will increase and entire families and communities will be positively impacted.
