IN SRI LANKA
The goal of the project is to create a secure and stable home for underage, unmarried mothers (to be) and their children.
The women, who are provided with a home by this project, are unmarried and got pregnant involuntarily. Therefore, they are not allowed to live with their families anymore. The project intends to provide medical and psychological treatment and gives them the opportunity to live in the mother and child home together with their children.
Of utmost importance is the promotion of the young mothers’ autonomy, which is to be achieved through education. The women will be given the opportunity to acquire a high school diploma and professional training by attending school and private lessons in the afternoon. This gives the young women the chance to earn a living and leads to a self-determined life.
