Prenatal Project

"The aim of education should be to teach a child to think, not what to think." (John Dewey)

Because Adolescent girls are the next most vulnerable after 0 to 5 year olds, we empower them through education & vocational guidance.

They are after all the future mothers of our Country’s Children.

Empowerment of Adolescent Girls & Boys through:

  • Creation of small groups led by trained village workers as their mentors

  • Formal and informal education emphasizing health, hygiene and social issues

  • Vocational training and guidance programs

  • Yearly medical checkups and immunizations

Some Statistics about Adolescent Girls:

  • 33% of girls 15-19 years of age are married.

  • 58% of adolescent girls have commenced childbearing.

  • 23% of married 15-19 yrs old girls have second order of birth.

  • As many as 55% are illiterate in this group.

  • 47% of adolescent mothers have Low Birth Weight babies.
    To improve on these horrendous statistics, we need to increase awareness in both the adolescent boys and girls.

  • National Nutrition Monitoring Bureau(2012)- 25% girls less than 18 were married and amongst them 25% were short statured
