Every year, 7.3 million girls become pregnant before they turn 18. Teenage pregnancy increases when girls are denied the right to make decisions about their sexual health and well-being.
The causes of teenage pregnancy include a lack of access to sexual and reproductive health education and services. The expectations of communities on girls to become mothers early can be a cause along with sexual violence.
We firmly believe that girls’ bodies are their own and they must have the ability to make their own decisions about them.
By raising girls’ awareness of sexual health, protecting them from abuse and connecting them with education and health services, we support the key decisions they make about their futures and bodies so they can avoid teenage pregnancy.
