7:35 pm
reasons for these and it is to money. and our street debate tomb headed to windows in namibia to find out more hello and welcome to another episode of the 77 percent this week we are in fin took in a me be a more specifically in havana, the informal settlement that you see behind me and it's because that typically, low income countries are more likely to experience the problem of early pregnancy or teen pregnancy as compared to high income countries. and particularly in this area, you can imagine that it's a serious problem. and that's why we're here and we want to find out, why does this problem exist? what are the consequences and what can we do to put an end to it? who better to answer these questions for me than some nubians. and we're going to begin with by grace. she is actually looking very scared. rayden. ha, ha ha. but that's right. so by grace you're a teen mom. and you made headlines, hey, namibia, because you actually got pregnant at the age of 14. can you. ready see what
7:36 pm
happened. my parents had like a funeral of my grandmother in the go like back and forth to the village. but then when they found out that i had a boyfriend, it's when they started asking christians, they did just that having sex in on of it. then i told, and it yourself had 6 in i didn't get my period for so long in all of it. what was going through your minds? okay. um i was the do essentially time where was depressed in i was to amazed course at school were very weak. al to kind of thought about like having abortions in order for it. so the thought crossed your mind, but you locked it against it. an old was your boyfriend at the time, by the way. 21. nathan. 21. so you were a 14 year old dating a 21 year old. but you're back in school now. yeah. i'm right, you haven't been able to come back to school. you're working in a touch up at the moment. so did you have to drop out immediately? you got pregnant or what happened when i went to school until i was 8 months pregnant? and then like my what i broke at school, your water, brooklyn,
7:37 pm
you ain school. yes. can you talk to me through that experience? i mean, that must have, i can't imagine where you in class where you are on the flew airplane. where are they doing? yeah, we like no changing glasses most. did you also have an older boyfriend? yeah, i was having an older brother and he was like 25. but there is and i took all my boyfriend was lake, then needs to support. he not all entries, those things. so your parents were not in a position to do this for you, i imagine. yes. but then the guy was even denying when i told him that i'm pregnant until 2, as 8 months, less at them. he except at the child. yeah. because who info at the any, let's come to immaculate who's on this site. she's a senior research fellow. what did the figure say to in his pregnancy is indeed a serious concern. then ambien government have what we call the a indication monitoring information systems. a significant number of the learners that are not coming big. i actually do to pregnancy. so early in there you can seed
7:38 pm
around 40 percent 40 placements while learners are not returning to school. wow. ok . i want to speak to where is he west yet he is. why is the rate of teen pregnancy so high? a lot of kids are being approached by adults or bit may be bigger boys here. so this is also to get a fresh fruit. well, what do you mean a fresh fruit? fresh fruit is like a limousine. these are i'm proud of myself because i've been drinking maybe 15 gills of virginia or something like that. so it's for us. it's a joke or maybe so it's a fun thing. oh ok. let's hear from frieda. what are some of the stories that you've heard from the people you're working with? most girls that usually um, let me say fall pregnant or the stories that i've met are people from traditional aspects. and traditionally, you're taught to not sort of really refuse when a men approaches you, because this means older than you are firstly that other person is a perpetrator. it's either a puts you had $61.00 and a child that's rape. and i personally feel like their bodies are really not fit at
7:39 pm
14, your body's not for to k to term. you should be given the option of know if you want to have an a but not even if you want to, you should have an abortion, because very much you're young. but isn't it? what, what does that countries constitution say about the legality or illegality of abortions? here only under 3 conditions, if i'm speaking under correction, 4 conditions, yes. contextually under law, abortion is legal. so it, but legal only under verify considered a very distinctive conditions outside of that it's criminalized. which means that if you do go for becto abortion you will be arrested when you'd be fined $5000.00 or 5. he has imprisonment or both. so i'm guessing, immaculate that given what we've just heard, that the number of unsafe a bushes is probably on the rise just as teen pregnancies are. yes we here are stories of women. oh young goes who'd blit them themselves almost to death. it is a, it is really our and the stories, the issue of finding a way to liberalize abortion in namibia is a matter that needs the urgency of all the attention. okay. that, that, that,
7:40 pm
that we need to put, i'm curious to hear from simpson, what his views are. we have the ladies there who are saying that abortion should definitely be an option on the table, particularly for serious the young mothers. the church is very clear and is it forbids it? is there no middle ground whatsoever? i don't think we as human beings have the right ah, to take life. we should support the mother in terms of going through this process. okay, frida, you had something to say to me earlier, please go ahead. women should be given the choice because um some, some said we should lead women k to tim. but do we actually asked these women? what emotionally? what have you gone through carrying this baby to her? oh, you asked an important question, which i want to asked by grace the emotional toll that he takes on you to carry a baby when you're 14 and not really being ready to. how was that emotionally? what frida was talking about,
7:41 pm
sometimes i felt like i don't wanna go to school in. yeah, i'll go to church when to be honestly currently since i gave birth, i did not really go pick to church because i felt like it was like a shame to the people. like yeah, they'd maybe look at nina, we're flic ice f seemed or tell me about your life as you give it a give my friends of it should have been supportive in the a offer to the hyatt in okay, immaculate. obviously not everybody will have the luxury of having their parents get a nanny for them of the ability to even go back to school. so what are some of the long term consequences of teen pregnancies? to build within the community is total dropout for majority of young girls because they get caught into that system where the pac not just want nothing to do with the pregnancy. and parents also have a tendency to continue ostracizing them by putting punitive measures on this youngers. so school dropout is really for most girls the, the on. yeah, actually, and i also read that incidentally, people who are teen mothers are more likely to raise children who will themselves
7:42 pm
become teen perez. so let's now look at the solutions because this is a problem that is faced surely around the globe, but particularly in africa. what do we do so that and in the next 1020 years, we don't have another 1020000, my graces. i personally say less degree abortion. but if you don't of what i bought it, it's fine. you could, you don't have to, but give other people the choice to make that work. all right, fantastic, immaculate, very quickly, please. the worst case scenarios where pregnancy takes place because of rape or incest. but then they're also cases way where we really need to bring big the joy, the fun, the beauty of sex back into the platform. so that like that, and along with the stigma ties bring it back to the those youngsters who wants to engage sexually can, can apply their minds and, and know that i know whatever vet is there to, to know. and i think okay, we're just wrapping up this debate and i want to hear from the 2 ladies here. i
7:43 pm
would prefer that girls pick contraceptives. yeah, it all can. but sometimes in the contraceptives out of stock, that's even one thing always is not fair. when you go full up, it's not a soul. thank you. i like that. like race. i'm that thing you should fall pregnant, but if you do in the 4th grade pregnant, it's not the end of the war. hey i, i really like that. that's actually a really positive note to end on. it's not the end of the world if you do become a t mother, but most importantly, going back to what people will see. education is key and making sure that these conversations are happening out in the open as usual. thank you so much for working with and many thanks, edith. and if you live in a community with similar challenges, what would be your solutions if you want to watch a longer version of the diabetes up for you. and it's on our youtube channel, a d, w, the 77 percent, and a make sure you comment on that. and now we've heard about the 2 young months and
7:44 pm
their experiences and how about the young duds? and this reminds me personally of 2 friends whom i won't mention their names. now the day these 2 dudes received the news that they had impregnated their girlfriend . i'm telling you the un is uncertainty and fear was huge. how did they end up? that's a story for another day. for now are gods of mute? reporter sylvia. a jumble. caught up with a tin dud in the robbie. and here is what she learned. a lot has been said about teenage mothers, but there is a forgotten lot deemed as most of these young men i've sent my communities and feel neglected. my name is even a ruby and on god of today we focus on, i'm was his is that they have been thrown into fatherhood at the end of 17 with us at the high school see touch
7:45 pm
when he was injured to live in. she was a grid below him, so he used to help her with her homework. their parents were used to sing them together, but you know, we are human being. so i had feelings, she had feelings, but nobody has ever told each other that they're in love or not much. it just came inside in like that. i just found myself in her, in a relationship almost in his sleep tut, such as having sex. and she felt pregnant and i was worried because, you know, she was a school girl, a was a schoolboy. so we were both climbing and it just affected i do care. sure. and what did you think i did you think of abortion? actually that never came in my mind cause the i've been raised, people do respect life in our community. so it was difficult for me to advise her to our board route and go to the next move as in what did you do next?
7:46 pm
okay, since i was afraid because her parents were harsh, it forced me to move from dabilla to another town whereby i had to go for missing for some few weeks. and some days before i came back after the story had been sorted out. but an almost done, he was arrested, it's illegal for children in kenya and get new sexual acts. however, such a 1st as involving maintenance are often handled differently to those involving adults under a system called conversion. the law usually a place to tunes who engage in consensual sex. the chief decided and advice to me not to not to drop out of school. and he advised me to be attending to in their school each and every day. so he called my parent who is my dad, and he told him that is the one will be responsible for my child and the girl. and
7:47 pm
that's where i had the freedom to go back to school for the name. but despite that, he's that hasn't offered the support to me did. i'm was, has no been full to take on the responsibility of an adult to support his new family. the girl is at the moment out of school and has already given birth to a baby. boy. i will sometimes says this much of a taxi to make it this lock. i'm doing it for survival, cause for now i'm on in the bed and boy, and in fact my dad. so i love my family, i love the guy. so i'm supposed to provide for them so i can just see that i can just get fitted cause they do depend on me. so i just must wake up in the morning, come for my asshole, and do all these for my survival. and because i love them, and i must provide for the hostility from different media. baby's mother is still there, but almost says he's going to mend fences and when they're well,
7:48 pm
i find that past me. impressive and good luck to amazon is of family. and we've got a couple of comments on this video on our facebook page and the prince. oh, let me just check on that prince said james from cumberland sees a great move, a step which even some a mature men can't still handle in our society today. and we have dinner rica, laconia from kennedy says, in my village, i think he must be 19 or 20 years old. we had 6 kids plus him and his wife while dinner rica. that sounds like a lot of responsibility for anybody, let alone somebody that young. now, in some cases tended pregnancy rance hand in hand with early marriage, according to the united nations, there are currently about 650000000 women and gods around the world, who are married before the age of 18. and if things don't change, there will be 170000000 more. gus?
7:49 pm
married by 2030. now the u. n. wants to eliminate child marriage completely, but it seems said various til are going to be a long way to go. now in namibia, almost one in 5. gus experiences a child marriage. we went to cover all region in north eastern namibia where the highest number of child marriages occur and caught up with a young woman who told us a story much. he called a village in north east and in a b. m. the places home to heal them. a foot, she was raised by her grandmother along with 6 other children in with her family struggling to make ends meet her grandma arranged for her to be married at just 16 . it was a major. it's such as of my grandmother when i came for august holidays natural my spelled my grandmother say that there's a mental guy who came to me and then asked them which man and for the way. and the
7:50 pm
mom grandmother said the man came and then he asked, you asked me, your hand in marriage asked, why did you allow them into how, why did you allow the men to build a house without hearing it for me? hilda married a man 14 years older than herself, but she's far from alone. according to the 1000000 government, almost 20 percent of golden, that may be of forced into marriage, compared with only just of a 4 percent of boys. unsurprisingly, the marriage took a toll on her teenage life and education lament us to have her me, and then he never wanted me to be friends with my friends anymore. and then after school i just have to be at home and then working for him all the time. it really felt like it's really difficult for me to do all those things. to me. it looked like in spanish men a punishment. but even traditionalists and hilton village are starting to acknowledge and slowly unravel because of schooler.
7:51 pm
i fades in a good child to marriage even though their school. but we can make means that they one sees in this cool. she can also come for a 1st period, initiation, then back to school. so attitudes are changing, but in her marriage, hilda was determined to make her own choices. how i needed to have children with me, but i even saw myself very young to have children at that age. and, and they were gonna do that, i'd be hoping to have to go to the clinic and get injured. then, for feller planning mad gwinnett, when i came to the clinic, i had the maturity should not know, but it with her husband, frustrated by her inability to get pregnant. hilda's marriage became even more strained. the men nevada state, their glenn,
7:52 pm
and then i had the way i decided to leave that guy, is he as forsakes? and then i said, no, i'm on my bed and then they, they loved me. so i really got angry. i bet my things when i moved to my grandmother's house, the ill fated marriage caused hilda to fall behind in her education. but now at 21, she's back on track to finish secondary school. and while they embed and showed that a member of the men bad, bad giving dead jour leanplum that mendoza had barons that sent him to school and never implemented that fence and began somebody because he is better and sent him to school. hilda isn't sure if she wants to get married again or have children, but one thing's for sure. next time it will be her choice on me. and this story illustrate so ali marriage can indeed disrupt her childhood, and in my opinion, marriage should actually be a possible choice. and on
