NGO’S step in to solve the teenage pregnancy distress

Kenyan NGO’s have stepped in to solve the teenage pregnancy ditress. This comes after the alarming pregnancy rates across the country that  sends a warning message that should not be ignored.

Kenyan NGO’s have woken up by this call to come up with strategies that will he’ll to calm and bring a change about this situation.. Already some organizations are suggesting that sexual education should be included in the school curriculum.

Young girls are getting pregnant and worse the fact that it is affecting their studies. Kenyans have raised concern saying that parents, teachers and the concerned parties should come through to curb the early pregnancies.

Mostly parents have been criticized for leaving the responsibilities to teachers and this could go wrong in so many ways. We have all heard cases of girls or even boys being raped by teachers after they took advantage of them and the opportunity given to guide the students.

One of the organization that deals with adolescent health is already taking up the initiative to have conversations around the issues so as to get sustainable solutions.

Btwn June 2016 & July 2017, 378,397 girls in Kenya aged 10 to 19 got pregnant. This was clear from the recent wake of girls sitting their exams while pregnant or with their babies! Is it not time we embrace human sexuality education in our school curriculum??

What do you think can be the solution to this pregnancy menace?
