Kenyan school children have faced different challenges from kidnappings to early pregnancies and finally to dropping out of schools.Some of these challenges have seen the students lose their lives.
Teenage pregnancies have been a thorn in flesh for many school girls.The unfortunate thing is that some of these pregnancies result from the real fathers of the students.Some have ended up in police custody while other cases have ended up dying naturally after threats and bribery claims.
Before the schools were opened in October last year,there were serious cases per county about the teenage pregnancies.Some counties such as Homabay featured at the top.In most cases,the students shy away from schools once they realise that they are pregnant.Luckily,the Government has been in the forefront in demanding for these young mothers to go back to schools.
Kilifi county is set to be at the headlines as the first county to construct the first school for the teenage mothers.This school in Ganze Constituency will be officially opened on 2nd August.These students will be greatly helped and taken care of in terms of fighting off stigma that has barred many from completing their studies.This is great news for the parents whom some have given up in such situations at home once their children become victims.
