Charity To Extend Teen Services To 4 Counties
By Chiedi E. Nyenmoh

MONROVIA, January 16 (LINA) – The international charity Young-Life, a non-profit organization in Monrovia, has disclosed plans to extend its services to four counties in July this year to build the education capacities of teen mothers.

Regional Director James Davies named Margibi, Grand Bassa, Nimba and Bong as counties targeted for the expansion.

Making the disclosure on the UNMIL Radio “Coffee Break” Monday, Davies said the organization has been working in Montserrado County since its inception a few years ago building hope for the future of would-be pregnant teens and teenage mothers by encouraging them to go back in school.

He indicated that a one-day workshop under the auspices of the group was held in Monrovia over the weekend with 80 young girls from across Montserrado County participating.

Davies said the conference was a challenge for every young girl who participated because it benefited those who are forgotten and are unable to sustain their babies and themselves.

He added that it is time the program is extended to the four counties to help build the capacities of young mothers in the face of their present condition and prepare them to contribute to the development of society.

He explained that the NGO does not have a scholarship program, but is networking with other partners in Liberia “so that together we can provide the means in helping those teen mothers in getting back in school.”
