Educate and Economically Empower Teen Moms With Me

What I'm Leading

I am on a mission to economically empower teen moms, and teach vulnerable girls about their sexual health and reproductive rights. Kenya has an extremely high rate of adolescent pregnancies, and I’ve seen these girls fall through the cracks and not receive the support they need.

In response, I founded the Western Twaweza Empowerment Campaign (WETEC). WETEC works to raise awareness of comprehensive sexuality education, and impart survival skills to teen moms. Our goal is to help these teen moms to earn a decent living, and to help all vulnerable young women to prevent unintended pregnancies.

I want girls to be fully aware of who they are and what they can achieve. Information is power, and with it these girls are learning that they can be powerful.

Who I'm Impacting

3,120 pregnant teenage girls in 3 years.
