‘’Empowering Teenagers to Curb Pregnancies in Kenya during, and beyond COVID 19 crisis’’

The Tamatisha! ‘’Empowering Teenagers to Curb Pregnancies in Kenya during, and beyond COVID 19 crisis” Project is funded by the Ford Foundation and is being implemented by FAWE Kenya in partnership with ENAI Africa between September 2021 to September 2023 in 5 Counties; Nakuru, Kajiado, Nairobi, Machakos and Narok Counties. The project aims to significantly reduce the incidence of teenage pregnancy in Kenya during and beyond the COVID 19 crisis by enhancing awareness of the importance of sexuality education and the acceptance of teenage mothers back to school.

Tamatisha project seeks to;

  • Conduct rapid assessment on the current teenage pregnancies and school dropouts in the select counties to advise apt solutions.
  • To empower girls, young women and influence parents, community leaders, and government officials, to customize interventions for prevention of teenage pregnancy, support re-entry to schools for teenage mothers and build their resilience.
  • Increase societal awareness on prevention of teenage pregnancy and acceptance of re-entry of teenage mothers in schools by discussing concepts of human sexuality education through various media platforms.
