Last month, the teenage mothers in the Dream Girls program graduated after 6 months of education and skill training, which will allow them to move towards internships that will help them take responsibility to forge a new life for themselves and their babies. This will empower them for a life that is full of possibilities.
Together with our partners, The Aberdeen Women's Center and @freedomfromfistula, the Aminata Maternal Foundation would like to thank you for making this possible!
