Teenage Pregnancy

AM Anders Midtgaard Public Seen by 291

High rate of teenage girls getting pregnant in the Kariga district due to lack of sexual education at home and in the schools. Teenage pregnancy leads to high fall-out rates from high school and secondary education. This in addition leads to unemployment and financial strain on the families. The girls involved feel stigmatized by peers and sorrounding society.
