Girl Pride Africa a non-profit organization that was founded in October 2016. Created from a lack of existing services for young girls, teen moms and pregnant mothers – we are empowering them to be better.
We hope to give teenage mothers a positive place where they feel loved instead of judged. We offer a weekly life skills program for teenage mothers and pregnant teens at our 6 locations throughout Cape Town.
51% of teen moms never graduate high school, while 97% of Girl Pride Africa teenage mothers are graduating.
Girl Pride Africa encourages setting educational and career goals for each teenage mother that we work with and walks beside her to accomplish her goals as well as to provide a safe place of encouragement, hope and support through mentors and their fellow community of teenage mothers. We also encourage independence through teaching life skill classes such as; budgeting, money management, job interviewing skills, resume building, cooking, self-defence, nutrition, stress and anger management, relationship workshops and so much more.
Our organization is not only changing lives in the world of teenage mothers, it is also changing the community. The impact of a girl child who will not stay on welfare throughout her lifetime and who is going to give her and her child a brighter future leads to a better economy and society.
