It is late afternoon, Brian, 3 snuggles up to his Mum Florence, 19. “When I became pregnant at 15, I was not prepared for parenting, I lost hope. my boyfriend vanished. Recently, I returned to school with the support of ‘Hope for Rwanda’ a local charity supporting young teen single mothers. They have built my confidence which was destroyed after I became pregnant. They have taught me to manage the finger pointing and gossip which was destructive.”
