Our work with adolescent mothers in vulnerable conditions made it possible to identify, through surveys and interviews, different disparities such as their status as women, girls, youth, migrants, and pregnant women that limit their opportunities and well-being. From the surveys and interviews conducted, we found that these disparities continue to grow with greater force due to the difficulties of access to education and the possibility of a higher level of schooling; followed by limitations in the development of skills for work that would enable them to obtain a job and / or generate a means of subsistence for themselves and their children. Likewise, and given their situation as adolescent mothers, they lack knowledge and resources for self-care during pregnancy, postpartum and breastfeeding. They need access to basic medical, nutritional and psychosocial support that provides them with the necessary tools to attend to their pregnancy and their condition as new mothers. Our project understands that the empowerment of adolescent mothers must include a holistic process which we divided into three stages:
i) Training opportunities in specific job skills to improve access to sustainable livelihoods.
ii) Medical care during pregnancy, postpartum and training for self-care and care for the new born baby.
iii) Psychosocial support for the development of their life project and the strengthening of maternal and filial ties in the beneficiary's family environment. These lines are strengthened through a process of training in leadership, skills and abilities that empowers them and helps them gain autonomy.
