40% girls in South Africa between 14 and 19 were pregnant once. Half of them fall pregnant again before 19. With Rebuilding Dreams facilitators are trained and mentored to do group sessions with young parents aiming at guiding them to be good parents, to fulfil their own educational, financial and relationship dreams, to prevent further untimely pregnancies and HIV/AIDS, to ensure father involvement from this young age (64% of South African children grow up without their fathers) and to ensure good nutritional education to prevent stunting in the babies.
