Eduwatch Documentary on Economic Barriers to the Re-entry of Teenage Mothers to School

This Documentary was produced by Eduwatch in partnership with STAR Ghana Foundation with support from FCDO, and highlights the economic barriers to the re-entry of teenage mothers to school.

Even though the GES Re-entry Policy has aided the re-enrollment of about half (10,869) of the in-school teenage girls who got pregnant between 2018 and 2020 (22,147), the chances of these girls staying to complete school are very slim since the poverty factor that led to the pregnancies still exists, coupled with the added burden of caring for their babies. Poverty has the potential to cause these girls to dropout again, and poses a barrier to the re-entry of the other half who are yet to re-enter.

The documentary ultimately recommends financial support to such teenage mothers to re-enter and stay to complete school.
