Build Awareness On The Plight Of Adolescent Mothers With Me

What I'm Leading

My campaign seeks to bring to the front burners the difficult issues young mothers face as a result of stigmatization. The goal of the campaign is to collect the stories of women who were left to fend for themselves as teen mothers with emphasis on the problems they faced, the help they wish they had, and to highlight ways in which their lives would have been different if they had received the support from family and community instead of being castigated and condemned.

My goal is to help end the shame-game andbuild a strong support system foradolescent mothers and their vulnerable children.

Who I'm Impacting

Adolescent mothers to voice their demands. And empowering them through education and skill acquisition.
