Challenge

The barriers to education for young mothers are significant in Nchelenge. Little or no support systems and structures in place to support young mothers to continue their education. Stigma attached to forced marriage,sexual abuse and unplanned motherhood also prevents most young mothers back to school. Lack of accurate and culturally-appropriate sexual and reproductive health education and gender-based violence often lead to early unplanned pregnancies which pushes girls out of school.

Solution

The project will; Provide a second chance education support to 100 teen mothers Training and Support for the families and communities of 100 teen mothers to protect girls from the "push and pull" factors that takes them out of the school, and to address/prevent the stigmatization of young mothers who return to school. Orientation and training programs for teachers/boys to provide a more gender-friendly environment for girls to stay in school and learn. Awareness raising on girls education

Long-Term Impact

Over 100 Empowered young women that are literate and contribute to their social and economic status of their homes, community and the nation at large. A conducive, friendly and supportive environment or community for the young women education and girls. Reduced poverty levels at household, and community levels Higher literacy levels among young women in Nchelenge district of the current total population of over 190,000.
