Tiwa Savage speaks to teenagers as part of #LetGirlsLead! On 8th March 2015, Tiwa Savage spoke to hundreds of young people about Teenage Pregnancy, pursuing your dreams and hope after pregnancy.
On what she had to say about planning for parenthood:
“Life is about planning ahead, so if you as a young person do not plan for parenthood, you will always be dependent on other people and unable to break out of the cycle of poverty. It is not good to keep on being helpless – we have to take responsibility for our lives.” said Tiwa.
Reach A Hand Uganda reaches out to young people with knowledge on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) as well as HIV. Their message to the youth is simply, “Delay sex or use contraceptives if you really have to have sex”, also highlighting that Teenage Pregnancy is not a girls issue but one that affects each and everyone one of us.
