AEGY Uganda Reports
6,000 Girls in Kamuli Pregnant after first COVID 19 lockdown.
During the first lock down due to COVOD 19 it was realized that out of the 112,954 pupils in primary schools 6,000 teenage pregnancies were registered during the first lock down last year. The girl child has been affected more than any other in the vulnerable category. Many of the children by the time schools opened many had failed to report back including boys, girls and even the teachers. Others reported has been the increasing cases of domestic violence and poverty with in the community. AIDS Education Group for Youth (AEGY) has been supporting 50 girls in Primary and 32 in apprentice but these could not continue due to budget cut down affected by COVID 19.
AEGY is had been teaching boys and girls in making useable sanitary pads and encouraging boys to be supporting. In addition to peer to peer counselling and psychosocial support they need to be talked to but with COVID19 not easy to reach them.
But we continue with weekly radio talk shows to reach out to these vulnerable girls in community.
