BACK TO SCHOOL CAMPAIGNS
RU-Kenya organization conducts regular campaigns for teen mothers to go back to school and continue learning after giving birth. We go an extra mile of harmonizing relationship with parents, teachers and peers for a successful integration and transition. We believe in #secondchanceforteenmums. Poverty, lower educational level, inadequate family support, and stigma contribute to negative health outcomes for both adolescent mother and her child. They face the risk of repeat adolescent pregnancies if they don’t return to school within six months after delivery, get married or live with a male partner where they are likely to be exposed to violence. These girls deserve a second chance through specialized school programs which can provide means of multidisciplinary services, parenting adolescents while keeping them in school.
