Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Program

Teen pregnancy has serious consequences for young women, their children, and communities as a whole. Too-early childbearing increases the likelihood that a young woman will drop out of high school and that she and her child will live in poverty. Statistically, the sons of teen mothers are more likely to end up in prison, and the daughters of teen mothers are more likely to end up teen mothers too.

SI Cordillera holds lectures for girls between 12 to 14 years old to raise awareness about teenage pregnancy.
