HOPE FOR RURAL TEENAGE MOTHERS

High unemployment perpetuating poverty among the women and youth particularly teenage mothers in the rural communities is a major problem in the Atwima Nwabiagya Municipality. Hope for rural teenage mothers was a project financed by the “The Pollination Project” to provide 15 teenage mothers from the Gyankobaa rural community with bead making skills and provide them start up capital for them to start their business.

The project is expected to help these teenage mothers generate income to support themselves and their babies.

Gyankobaa is an agrarian community producing mainly ginger. The high teenage pregnancy in the community can be attributed to the limited economic opportunities for the parents to adequately cater for the needs for their children particularly teenagers. CIRCDev is so much grateful to the “The Pollination Project” for both their technical and financial support towards the implementation of this project.
