Young mothers celebrate their graduation from an International Rescue Committee parenting program last week in Palabek Kal, northern Uganda. The graduation marked the completion of a 9-part course that teaches parenting skills to young mothers between the ages of 17 and 25.
During two decades of war in Uganda, many young women were separated from their parents or lacked positive parental role models, and the IRC is helping to fill the gap by teaching practical skills, including: interpreting why a child is upset, disciplining without violence, providing a balanced diet, budgeting for household needs, and saving for a child's future.
