Teenage mother rehabilitation 

Premarital pregnancy is considered as a taboo in Ugandan families and this counts for the mistreatment and abuse faced by majority of the girls after getting pregnant. Most pregnant teen girls in Uganda and in Mukono district in particular undergo stigmatization, abandonment and rejection by their families, which compels them to carry out abortions, drop out of school, engage in forced/early marriages, and spend the rest of their lives in abject poverty subject to child labor, abuse and neglect.
