Teenage pregnancy is rampant in South Africa.  Young girls are falling pregnant due to the many social problems that exist in rural and township communities.

Some use their bodies in exchange for marks at school.  Some do not have adequate parental guidance or care, and engage in risky sex with boyfriends who promise them gifts or money. Some are desperate for love and turn to boys for the love they need. All of these young girls need guidance and care when they fall pregnant.

Teen Pregnancy

Teenage pregnancy is a big problem in South Africa. Many girls become pregnant due to rape, unhealthy relationships and lack of parental guidance and supervision. Some go for abortions, but most keep their children, who are then raised by grandmothers. Orphans have more difficult issues to face, especially when they have no parents and extended family who don’t want the cost and responsibility of caring for another child. These girls then drop out of school and lose their futures.
