2. Wings of Hope Teen Mother Rescue Center Activities (2019/2020)
The CBO also partnered with Wings of Hope, a teen mother rescue center based in Kamulu, Machakos, that seeks to restore the dignity of teen girls who are chased from home after falling pregnant. The center works with various child welfare offices to identify and support teen mothers who most times are victims of domestic sexual abuse, to take them through psychosocial counseling, and thereafter provide them with a home for themselves and the child.
Through the partnership, the 2 organizations were able to conduct the following:
- Mentorship sessions for the girls
- Awareness-raising on menstrual health
- Distribution of sanitary pads
- Organizing a Christmas fun day and party for the girls in 2019
