Teen Pregnancy in the Philippines

The country has recently declared adolescent pregnancy as a national emergency. As adolescent mothers and fathers are compelled to prioritize pregnancy, early parenthood, and reproductive work, they are force to put their education on hold, which eventually prompt them to drop out of school.

As we observe the 2023 Girl-Child Week, let us show our support to all the young girls in our communities and remind them to prioritize education. Let's encourage them to pursue their dreams and help them create a world where they can thrive and reach their full potential.
