Christmas 2010 charity appeal: Children Our Ultimate Investment UK
Disadvantaged teenage girls are at particularly high risk of falling pregnant. The Teens and Toddlers project run by the charity 'Children Our Ultimate Investment UK' works with schools across England to identify youngsters most at risk of teen pregnancy. It offers a range of activities, including work experience, classroom learning and mentoring, aimed at giving them hands-on experience of the responsibilities involved in having a child, developing their confidence and self-esteem, widening their horizons, and helping them break the cycle of poverty.
Children Our Ultimate investment UK says: "Teens and Toddlers gives disadvantaged young people aged 13-17 the vocational qualifications, life skills, and self-belief they need to keep them in education, employment and training and to avoid risky behaviour. It is central to our goal to help young people fulfil their full potential."
Liability issues ended Children: Our Ultimate Investment’s ‘Project Caressing’ in the USA, however, with help from various fundraisers (including The Guardian newspaper) ‘Children: Our Ultimate Investment’ is doing well in the UK.
