Every teen mother at Rehema House (supported by Mercy House Global) has a story. And although they are all unique, each girl has endured unspeakable trauma and unimaginable hardships. When their time at Rehema House ends, they need assistance in their transition.
Our Mother & Child Graduate Program will provide school fees, uniforms and books for four years to the graduates who are transitioning from Rehema’s residential facility back to their homes, supported by their families. The sponsorship program will also help meet any medical needs that might arise for their children. As part of the resident’s economic growth, every graduate will be able to pay for her child’s education from the account that has been set aside from the product she has made during her residential stay (No money will exchange hands, Rehema will facilitate these accounts). It’s a beautiful way to help a teen mom, help herself and her child.
Laureen has a daughter named Patience and would like to become a computer scientist in the future.
Laureen's favorite memory verse comes from the book of Philippians 4:4, which says "Rejoice in the Lord and again I say rejoice." Laureen says this verse tells her to always rejoice and be glad in the Lord for he is good.
