“The big challenges are teenage pregnancy and early marriage"
Village chief Makholu Mahao was 18 years old when she got married, that was almost 60 years ago. Now as a village leader, she is seeing a rise in teenage pregnancies and early forced marriage. With the help of Lesotho Planned Parenthood Association and funding from She Decides, she is getting the help she needs to encourage young people to seek contraception and other services like HIV testing at the outreach post.
