The First Time Young Mothers Programme

ICRH Kenya launched the ‘First Time Young Mothers programme’ at the Mtwapa Health Center, Kilifi South Sub County in December last year. The programme is aimed to improving the quality of maternal, neonatal and child outcomes for pregnant adolescents and young women aged ten to twenty-four years.

The Ministry of Education promised to accept all young mothers back in school and local polytechnics with the support of a constituency bursary fund. The event was also used as a platform to raise awareness about the impact of COVID-19 on teenage girls and young women.
