Wakisa ministries on Teenage Pregnancy in Uganda

Behind the high walls of a spacious house at Bakuli, a suburb about 5km west of Kampala city centre is Wakisa Ministries-- Uganda's only teenage pregnancy crisis centre.

The 27 girls we found here when we visited should normally be at school or at home with their families. Instead, each one of them is here with a little secret.

They are either nursing little babies or carrying them in their small tummies. Over the last 10 years, Wakisa Ministries has become a household name for taking in hundreds of distressed pregnant girls from around Uganda.

Girls have been excited about our Mushroom project

Part of our vocational skills program includes farming and we ventured into mushroom growing. Our mushrooms are doing great...and guess what? We had some for lunch today.
