From the TEMAK project, the Teenage Mothers and Girls Association of Kenya, which provides vocational skills and the ability to earn a living wage to young women, many of whom are unwed mothers who have been ostracized by their family and community.
Operating out of a new center called the City of Hope in Kisumu, Kenya, the young women choose from job training in tailoring, hairdressing, secretarial skills, craft making, and computers. As a community center, the organization provides an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues, as well as a clinic, a nursery, and a school. Many of the young women participate in making crafts, earning income to support themselves and their families.
