Product description


"Our goal in the Department of Basic Education is to support learners who become pregnant and parents at school--to help them complete their schooling and, at the same time, to promote gender equality. This book makes an important contribution to achieving this goal by identifying the obstacles that lie in the way and by suggesting the practices that will help to clear them." --Bobby Soobrayan, director general, Department of Basic Education

"Essential reading for those seeking to understand this critical area of health and education policy and practice." --Rachel Jewkes, director, Gender & Health Unit, Medical Research Council

"In this book, we see how [young parents] handle the challenge of caring for children. When we all involve ourselves in looking after children, we contribute to gender equality." --Mbuyiselo Botha, Sonke Gender Justice
