As our world continues to turn, things change so fast. We are in the world that is dynamic, meaning, it is ever-changing. In a particular era, there were issues that arise. They may get worse or get fade. One issue is really bugging out the society: teenage pregnancy and it is really a great threat to the Philippine society.

We all know, generally that it is a pregnancy that occurs during a young age or in our “teen” years. It affects mainly their health and education, resulting to vague or even a crashed future. According to the Population Commission (PopCom), 24 babies are born to teenage mothers every hour and almost 200,000 Filipino teens get pregnant annually, most of them from ages 15 to 19. Additionally it was also found out that every day, 7.3 million women give birth.  As for the Philippine context, it is really a sad story for all the Filipinos that we really had hard time facing and brawling with this said issue.

As a help to our own nation, our group aims to prevent and decrease the teenage pregnancy in the Philippines. Through it, we can also protect the health of the teens and prevent the interruption of their studies, as it is affected by teen pregnancy, making the future of teen Filipinos brighter and would eventually uplift the economy of the country.

In making this project possible, we would create a petition in change .org and by also making a blog. We would also create infographics about the said project and other informations to increase the knowledge and awareness of our fellow citizens about the issue. The target audience would primarily the teenagers and secondarily, the parents, educators, government officials, and anyone who are concerned in preventing this issue.

We will need approximately two weeks to accomplish the said project and would consequently start the promotion after uploading the said project. We would be needing the support of everyone who are concerned in promoting the awareness of this issue and we will not be needing any financial support for we will be only creating a blog on website that is free of charge.

Our actions are really needed right now. Every moment minute, and second matters. Our country helped us live and grow and now, it is our time to give and pay back for what was given to us. Let us join our hands together to solve this issue. Make a difference and be the best versions of our selves, and we would build a better nation and stand together as one.
