Pregnancy Help Centre

Happy Home Foundation has been at the forefront of the defense of the dignity of the human person, the welfare of women, children, the youth and the family in Nigeria. In line with our set objectives we have found it necessary to set up a Pregnancy Help Centre in Enugu.

15% of adolescents in Enugu State and environs are school dropouts due to the prevailing economic crunch. Covid-19 has worsened the situation. A large number of jobless and uneducated youths are roaming the streets. The unemployed and uninformed are more prone to crime, restiveness, and exploitation. The increasing rate of human trafficking and teenage pregnancy in the State is worrisome.

Poverty and unemployment have been adduced as the main causes of teenage pregnancy. Adolescent girls in the poorest households are 3 times more likely to become pregnant. Lack of education especially in rural areas is also a contributing factor. The birth rate among the girls without education is 4 times higher than for those with education. Girls living in rural areas are more likely to become pregnant than those living in the urban areas. The marginalization which women and girls experience can only be reduced to the barest minimum if they are adequately equipped to change their situation.

Through our empowerment, education, humanitarian and legislative projects, we try to develop the capacity of women and girls especially those in the rural areas. However, the problem of teenage pregnancy and subsequent rejection by their families and society has to be addressed.

Most pregnant adolescents do not receive adequate quality health care. Existing Health Care Facilities focus more on the babies while neglecting the needs of their teenage mothers. Early motherhood increases the risks of dying at child birth and adversely affects the wellbeing of both the mothers and their babies. The statistics is staggering! Girls younger than 15 years are 5 times more prone to die in child birth than women in their 20s. Adolescent pregnancy contributes 30-40% of maternal deaths.

Happy Home Foundation has set up a Pregnancy Help Centre to provide shelter, emotional support, and medical care for these teenage girls and to reintegrate them back into the society at the end of their confinement. The Centre will also provide them entrepreneurship training, vocational skills development and character formation.

We believe that an unplanned pregnancy can have a happy ending with the needed support and the journey can be made safe for both mother and child. Maternal and child mortality need not continue to be a threat in Nigeria.
