How we help our young ladies


With a dedicated team of qualified teachers, we provide a strong support system for adolescent mothers who wish to continue their educational preparation for the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate (CSEC), Grade Nine Achievement Test (GNAT), and City and Guilds exams at any one of THE Foundation’s 10 centres.


Once enrolled in the PAM, adolescent mothers benefit from three categories of counselling – group and individual, sexual and reproductive as well as psychological.


The Policy for the Reintegration of School-Age Mothers into the Formal School System which was launched in 2013, makes it mandatory for adolescent mothers to return to the education system after the birth of their babies.
