2YoungLives is a mentoring scheme for pregnant girls in Sierra Leone, one of the most dangerous places to give birth. Supported by local mentors, girls and their babies can thrive, not just survive childbirth.

Story

At 16 Eisha became pregnant. She was rejected and thrown out by her parents and had to leave school. The situation was hopeless, until she encountered 2YoungLives (2YL). Her mentor gave her words of encouragement & hope. They shared their story & those of others who have gone through teenage pregnancy. A small business loan & support allowed her to start a business, which made her enough money to eat every day & save, enabling her to take care of herself in pregnancy & prepare for her baby. Family is important to her, 2YL helped her reconcile with her family.Growing in confidence, she is providing for herself & her baby, returning to school, with her parents support, & is getting alongside other pregnant teenagers. Eisha isnt unusual. Shes not a statistic. She doesnt want you to feel sorry for her. Be proud of her, of her achievements, her strength. Of taking up the challenge to be a good mother, a provider for her family. Shes a role model, friend & supporter of others.
