August 2021 Update

Dear Friends, 

In the last three months, Amos partner Cheka Sana Tanzania has kickstarted a project responding specifically to the needs of teenage mothers living or working on the streets of Mwanza. The team had identified on outreach that this was an increasing need, and that there were increasing numbers of girls on the streets who were becoming mothers themselves or were at risk of early pregnancy. 

During the first three months of this initiative, Cheka Sana have identified 27 girls who they have invited to become involved: 11 are already mothers, 13 were at risk of early pregnancy and 3 were currently pregnant. The project has started using mediation and counselling to build trust and a friendly relationship with these girls; offering play sessions for the young children of girls who are involved; and using individual and group sessions to support them. The group sessions on the street in particular are intended to help girls get to know each other and form a support system for each other whilst still on the streets. 

Cheka Sana’s team has already linked a number of girls with essential health services, including helping 17 of them register for health cards which enables them to access healthcare for themselves and their babies. Two girls who were pregnant also required legal assistance, because they’d previously been domestic workers and their contracts had been terminated unlawfully, leading them to come to the streets. 

With your support, Cheka Sana can continue to build trust and provide support to these girls and young women, as well as many more they may encounter. 

Thank you.
