North-Central Project Update: Curbing Teenage Pregnancy through Life-skill Empowerment

If it’s not peer pressure, it’s familial or community-based: some young girls from Kabba confront multiple challenges that usually end with early pregnancies, marriages or exposure to sexually transmitted diseases before or after graduation from Secondary school. On the 15th of May 2019, the girls from different schools and the rural community gathered to learn and dialogue on the effect of teenage pregnancy, peer-pressure and stereotypes that affects their daily lives. Led by North Central Coordinators; Ibitoye Rejoice Bolanle and Damilola Ayedero, the girls learnt new approaches to confronting pressure, campaigned against teenage pregnancies and early marriages, and learnt ways to identify peer manipulations.

They collaborated in learning new skills, producing collective results and exchanged new ideas.
