Save the Children (SC) – Malawi worked with young people, their families, and communities to educate youth about reproduction and health, to build the teens’ skills in decision-making and life choices, and to provide the means to prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV. In the southern Mangochi district, SC worked with more than 2,000 teen mothers to help them achieve that positive contribution via support groups called Teen Mothers Clubs (TMCs), giving them access to family planning (FP) information and methods and, most importantly, helping young women exercise their right to re-enrol in school and complete their secondary education.
