About this project

Hello everyone! My name is Lolah Mupotaringa, Founder and CEO at Girl Pride Africa. Girl Pride Africa is a registered nonprofit organization working closely with thousands of girl child and teenage mothers across Africa.

119 000 TEENS IN SOUTH AFRICA BECOME PREGNANT EACH YEAR. GIRL PRIDE AFRICA IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Our goal for 2020 was to open a preschool for our teen moms' babies and children, so they can get jobs to earn money to support their families or study, in order to become financially independent. The preschool was also to provide a safe, stimulating, happy environment where the children can learn through play.

In light of the Covid-19 lockdown, we have had to change our focus to simply ensure our girls and their babies simply HAVE FOOD AND CLEAN WATER.

We are all facing the uncertainty that is unfolding around us but more than ever before, Girl Pride Africa needs your support. This kind of crippling fear is what our teen moms we support experience daily. Pregnant teens and our teenage mothers are struggling to have one meal per day. What would you do?

Any level of donation would give hope to our desperate teen moms and their children during this time.

- $5 can feed a teenage mom and her family for a week.
- $50 provides nappies, wipes and food for the whole month.
- $100 provides crisis food hamper for a teen mom ready for delivery filled with all the essentials such as nappies, wipes, formula, baby wash etc, as well as rent for the month.

With the difficult decision to close our Centers, we are facing the fact that we won't have any stock left in a matter of days to help our girls. This means we will have to close entirely and say no to those that need us most.

We urgently need to raise $10 000 to ensure we are around to continue our mission of making sure every baby has a safe start to life.

Will you help today by making a donation for us to be able to purchase items through this difficult and challenging time?

ANY AND ALL HELP WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED! WITH MUCH LOVE AND GRATITUDE FROM ALL OF US AT GIRL PRIDE AFRICA.
