Interfaith Brief on Teenage Pregnancy

We, the faith community in Southern Africa (African Traditional Religion, Baha’i faith, Christian and Muslim) view children as whole human beings who need to be loved nurtured and enabled to flourish as they define their space in society. As they grow in the faith community, they develop their own value system and identity that upholds collective generational identity. All our faiths emphasise the value of children. It is our responsibility to be a safe space and provide love and hope as children go through difficult processes and seek second chances.
