Tanzania has one of the highest adolescent pregnancy rates in the world. More than 44 percent of girls have begun childbearing by the time they are 19. In Tanzania many girls are forced to grow up too fast. The girls interviewed for this film had babies when they were still children themselves.
I met 25 of them thanks to my collaboration with Forward. I am still in contact with some of them and am trying to raise funding to help them through Forward to go back to school and suport their children.
