Young girls, sometimes just ten years old, fall pregnant and find themselves facing desperate and life-threatening choices as a result of sexual abuse: isolation, homelessness, prostitution and abortion.
This is the reality in Kenya – the child-mother.
At The Beehive, we are taking action to transform the lives of some of the most at-risk young mums and their babies. Based in the town of Nakuru, The Beehive is a home which provides vital care and support.
Additionally, the girls receive education, either academic or vocational depending upon their individual ability or interest, as well as learning essential life skills required by both the traditions of their culture and the demands of an increasingly-developing third world nation.
The babies also receive education once they reach an appropriate age, meantime being able to grow and progress in a loving, caring and stable environment.
