Teen Pregnancy Still High

2011 Noble Laureate and renowned women advocate Leymah R. Gbowee has alarmed that the rate of teenage pregnancy across Liberia continues to climb astronomically.

Addressing a cross section of Liberians during a ceremony marking the first anniversary celebration of the Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa (GPFA) in Monrovia last Friday, Madam Gbowee said that this situation was scaring for a nation whose future depends on the ability of its youthful population.

GPFA is an initiative by Madam Gbowee which came to existance following the receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize alongside fellow compatriot President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Tawakel Karman of Yemen. The foundation is aimed at redeeming Liberian women from the sharko of poverty and illitracy.

She named a specific county where teenage pregnancy is very high, refering to results of her nationwide toure taking her to the15 political subdivisions.

The women advocate whose fame has claimed the attention of the World attributed the ugly wave of teenage pregnancy in the country to early marriage and prostitution.

According to her, the result of a study done by GPFA shows that “most teenagers in the country are left with no other option but to marry a man old enough to be their fathers only because their families can not afford a square meal let alone to send them to school.”

The Nobel laureate expressed regrets over the situation and stressed the need for young Liberian women to pursue quality education in relevent areas or demanding professions so as to have them succeed in life as she and President Sirleaf do.

She urged her fellow compatriots to support girls education, noting that the young girls’ future would face austere conditions unless they were afforded an opportunity to quality education.

I was curious if [BLOCKED] ever thought of changing the la[BLOCKED]t of
[BLOCKED]r website? Its very well written; I love what [BLOCKED]ve got to say.
But maybe [BLOCKED] could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. [BLOCKED]ve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two pictures. Maybe [BLOCKED] could space it out better?
