Stichting De Umbrella of Hope wil dat dit tienermoeders, die school vaak gedwongen verlaten, niet overkomt. Daarom bouwt de stichting aan een Teenage Mothers Center waar deze jonge meiden psychologisch worden ondersteund en worden opgeleid tot zelfstandige vrouwen.

Slechts 48% van de meisjes in Uganda maakt de basisschool af. Vaak worden ze gedwongen vanwege zwangerschap eerder met school te stoppen. Velen zullen nooit naar school terugkeren.

Meiden hebben recht op een goede opleiding. Hier zet stichting The Umbrella of Hope Foundation zich voor in. In het Teenage Mothers Centre zullen ze psychologische opvang en scholing krijgen, zodat ze uiteindelijk voor zichzelf kunnen zorgen.

Meiden helpen opleiden? Een kleine donatie kan al genoeg zijn voor een pen of boekje.

When I heard about the mission of Umbrella of Hope Uganda, I was excited to join their team. Coming from a social work background with a concentration in international humanitarian work, I believed this was an excellent opportunity to contribute to the community of Jinja, Uganda. Volunteers are in integral part to achieving our goals, and I am pleased to be working with this motivated group of individuals.
