Ultimate prevention of teenage pregnancy is achievable when the adolescent girls are able
to indulge in activities that keep them away from possibility of having sex and eventually
pregnancy. We hereby look to inform the adolescent girls of various ways they can spend
their time in productive manner, help them learn from those who have had the teenage
pregnancy challenge as their mentors to avoid the same.
In our capacity building, we do not only stop with the adolescent girls but include adolescent
boys and the community at large to inform them of the challenges teenage mothers face and
the risk that may befall their children. It is our belief that engagement of the community
elders will void communities of cultural activities that risk the adolescent girls. On the other
hand, engaging adolescent boys promises sustainability in preventing teenage pregnancy.
This contributes to achievement of SDG 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for
the teenagers and the children, 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and
promote learning opportunities for teenage mothers, 5. Achieve gender equality among
adolescent and empower teenage mothers.
