Estelle Lawrence Ibhayi Lengane Cause

Because babies born to teenage mothers are at higher risk of having health and development problems, we have started 2 support groups for teen moms in Macassar, Cape Town. There are already 15-20 teen moms attending each weekly group, and we hope to expand. We will be using a programme developed by Ilifa Labantwana and partners (see www.ilifalabantwana.co.za/project/ibhayi-lengane/). the programme makes use of a baby's blanket as a symbol of nurturing relationships around baby and mom that support their coping, growth and development over the first 1000 days.My Mandela Day challenge is to raise enough money to buy 67 blankets (with a sewing kit for each mom to decorate the blanket in some way to make it her own).
