#15. Niña Madre

Caracas, Venezuela.

A few months ago I spent a couple of weeks in my city Caracas.

I had the chance to photograph several activities in an organization called Niña Madre that works with pregnant woman. They give them support from appointments with a psychologist, by teaching workshops to learn how to create a small business, to cooking classes. The main idea is to prepare them for the great responsibility of being a mother.

Venezuela has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in south america. Everyday 1500 children are born from teens 12 to 19 years old.
