Empowering Teen Mothers

Our Mission

Claire works to teach girls that their worth is found in Christ and is beyond baby manufacturing.

So many children grow up without love and guidance from their parents. Eventually, young girls get pregnant because society teaches that they are only useful by having babies. Often times, these girls are still young and lack proper education. They are taught that they are less human, and they don’t have a voice. Most fathers are nowhere to be found, and the cycle repeats. Claire works to teach girls that their worth is beyond baby manufacturing – that their whole person is one made in the image of God.

How We Minister to Teen Mothers

[vc_featured_box heading_text=”Education” content_text=”Through education, teen mothers gain a greater ability to be both self-sufficient and to provide their children with important necessities. We educate mothers on proper nutrition, family planning, and other areas that motherhood tends to require. We are able to do all of this through a Christian world-view and educate these young mothers in a way that connects their daily lives to their faith in God.” heading_color=”#fefffe” content_color=”#fefffe” graphic_color=”#00cc55″ graphic_background_color=”#fefffe” icon=”fa fa-book”]
[vc_featured_box heading_text=”Evangelism and Discipleship” content_text=”In addition to witnessing to the teen mothers that we work with, we are able to disciple them, as many of them find Christ and are saved through His grace. This is the most important and lasting element of our ministry, and it is a continual joy to watch these women grow in the Lord.” heading_color=”#fefffe” content_color=”#fefffe” graphic_color=”#00cc55″ graphic_background_color=”#fefffe” icon=”fa fa-fire”]
[vc_featured_box heading_text=”Birthing Kits” content_text=”Many of the teen mothers who we minister to do not have the resources for hospital deliveries and thus give birth at home. Because some of the risks of childbirth can be mitigated through education and proper action, we provide birthing kits to mothers in order to make the delivery process safer and easier.” heading_color=”#fefffe” content_color=”#fefffe” graphic_color=”#00cc55″ graphic_background_color=”#fefffe” icon=”fa fa-archive”]
[vc_featured_box heading_text=”Tools for Generating Income” content_text=”By providing small income generating tools such giving a piglet or teaching skills like sewing, we are able to enable teen mothers to provide for themselves and their children. In addition to lifting up the mother, this also increases the likelihood that she will be able to provide proper nutrition, education, and other basic needs for her children.” heading_color=”#fefffe” content_color=”#fefffe” graphic_color=”#00cc55″ graphic_background_color=”#fefffe” icon=”fa fa-money”]
