Adolescent mothers are victims of violence, abandonment and misinformation
Jennifer Ávila

Lack of sex and reproductive education in schools leads to a considerable incidence of adolescent pregnancy.

Suyapa is a young 20 year old woman with two daughters. At barely 15 she had her first pregnancy. “Many of my friends and schoolmates got pregnant that year. Many of them have a very hard time because they are alone and it is difficult to have children,” says Suyapa who was born in Honduras, one of the worst countries to be a woman, according to Save the Children, international organization for the protection of children rights.see more
