#Childhoodisnotformotherhood

#Childhoodisnotformotherhood is a YEF comapign aim at comabting the alarming cases of teenage pregnancy and early childhood marriage during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. This campaign is being carried out under the theme Childhood is not for Motherhood.

Why we do what we do

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent preventive measures like lockdown and the closure of schools, so many other problems soured in the local communities, the most affected being the teenagers, youths and women. It has led to serious problems like teenage pregnancy, early and unplanned marriage, drug abuse, domestic violence and extreme trauma. Some of the factors for the rise however, are deeply rooted in culture itself couple with the lack of sexual education for the young adolescents. We therefore felt it is our responsibility as Young People to response to challenges our communities are facing.

Our Interventions

We conducted a series of community dialogue bringing together teachers, community leaders and mentors to interact with the young people on risky behaviours, Adolescent health mentorship. In this forum local solutions are figured out and stories are shared to inspire young people for behavioral change. Our target is to reach out to about 500 Influential Teebagers who will act as agent of change for peer to peer mentorahip in their cycles.
