In 2020 Sierra Leone overturned a ban prohibiting pregnant girls from attending school. However, teens are not encouraged to study when they are expecting.

According to the 2019 census, at the age of 19, nearly half of Sierra Leonean girls have started having babies. That means that almost half of them are deprived of education.

The "Dream Team Program" aims to transform their lives through income-generating skills and empowerment at the most vulnerable moment in their lives, both economically and emotionally, through rebuilding their self-esteem and confidence.

*In order to comply with the government COVID restrictions the Dream Team Program is currently suspended.

About one year ago @freedomfromfistula welcomed Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex to the Aberdeen Women’s Centre (AWC) in Sierra Leone.

During her visit she learned about the AWC programs that treat children with severe injuries caused by rape and FGM, including paralysis and incontinence. HRH's visit was essential to help raise awareness of the importance to expand the services to support child victims of rape.

Having a baby can cause a huge impact in a women’s life, especially in young women's lives. ⁠

The @AminataFoundation came about following the birth of @AminataConteh-Biger 's two beautiful children. She envisioned women in Sierra Leone to be able to access their basic human rights. ⁠

That’s why we work tirelessly to help as many women as possible to deliver their babies with dignity and safety.

With your incredible support we not only made it through 2020, but our community grew bigger and stronger than ever. Thank you!

Please keep supporting us, motherhood should mark a beginning, not an end.
