Tanzania is one of the few countries that tends to be blind to teen and young mothers by discriminating them and denying
their right to education. This vandalizes their dreams and bring them to the future of extremely violence and gender based violence. Teen and young mothers live without family, social or government support yet are denied by the men responsible. They live under maximum poverty because of the types of jobs they get, have no skills to be employed in decent jobs or self employed. Because of their life style, they all live to face all kind of violence.
We all know that every woman and girl deserves the opportunity to live a life free from violence and discrimination of all kind that is why Young Strong Mothers Foundation stands strong to advocate and create awareness on Gender Based Violence and women rights to the vulnerable teen and young mothers in Tanzania. We aims at increasing general sensitivity, understanding and knowledge about gender inequality, exchange of ideas, to pass over right information about gender, to display the evidence, fact and raise issues based on gender and women rights and increase understanding on various issues.
Apart from rising up women’s voice on sexual harassment, organizing for unequal pay and women’s political representation, Young Strong Mothers Foundation is raising up for the teen and young mothers right to education, ending discrimination and finding various opportunities for them to live a free, happy and independent life
