Empowering Futures: Breaking the Cycle of Teenage Motherhood and Child Marriages

Most teens enter parenthood unprepared for the stress a new baby brings, and many
experience frustration, resentment, and even anger toward their newborns. The fathers of the children abandon many of these girls and they are faced with a responsibility of raising children while they are still children themselves.
