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 is 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 will also provide a safe, stimulating, happy environment where the children can learn through play.
80% OF TEENAGE MOTHERS IN AFRICA NEVER FINISH HIGH SCHOOL. WHILE 75% OF GIRL PRIDE AFRICA TEENAGE MOTHERS ARE FINISHING HIGH SCHOOL!
We will offer free childcare to teenage mothers, for up to 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. As a nonprofit preschool, we are completely reliant on donations and online fundraising.
Help us raise funds for our teenage mothers and their children! SMALLER MONTHLY DONATIONS will allow us to create a more stable pipeline, so we have no disruptions with the support we offer. We believe when a community comes together we are able to achieve great things, so we hope you can help support and promote our project!
ANY AND ALL HELP WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED! WITH MUCH LOVE AND GRATITUDE FROM ALL OF US AT GIRL PRIDE AFRICA.
Use of Proceeds
We are raising funds to cover the rent of the space we would like to set the preschool up in. We also need to buy supplies for up to 100 children: chairs, tables, stationery, stoves, fridges, microwave and more. $50 can feed and pay rent for 1 child to be part of our little school. Please help a child be in school and free our teen moms up to study or get into the workplace themselves!
