Did you know that 103 in every 1000 pregnancies in Kenya is attributed to girls between 15 and 19 years. Did you know that majority of these pregnancies are as a result of sexual abuse by relatives and neighbors who take advantage of these innocent and young girls?

Njoo dada Trust in Kenya runs a safe house for teenage mothers in crisis. While in the home, the teenage mums learn some skills while others go to school and college. Apart from giving these girls a chance to pursue their dreams again, we offer psycho-social support as they transition into parenting.
