There is an increasing rate on cases of teenage pregnancy in Uganda mostly in this covid-19 lockdown.

Parents have neglected their roles of sebsitixin and educating their children about sexual related issues which have resulted into early marriages and teenage pregnancy affected age group is 10 to 19

This requires us all to join hands together to sensitize the public on teenage pregnancy

We need to work together to protect girl child in Uganda, Africa and globally.
Girls have been sexually harassed and abused by old men but no action on perpetrators

Greetings to you and welcome to World Pulse. This is a serious matter indeed. Our precious gems are being taken advantage of and in other cases, we find that teenagers are not being educated on this issue or they are pressed and believe that pregnancy is the only way out. We need to deliver to them a message of hope. Thank you for your powerful first story. We look forward to hear more from you.

All the best.

Welcome to World Pulse Kajumba. Your story is your power!

Teenage pregnancy is a serious problem, I agree. The same problem as well in our country. How do you think we can encourage them to avoid this? Was only parents have the big part of the problem or this also includes the teenager?

We all have roles to play parents, political, religious and cultural leaders, we teenagers
We have to come together do community sensitization
