• Gingko is an initiative that was formed during the COVID19 pandemic. It is a response to the rampant increase in teen pregnancies that have and are being witnessed during this pandemic.

    At the heart of Gingko is the spirit of the Swahili proverb, “kuvunjika kwa mwiko si mwisho wa upishi” meaning the breaking of a cooking stick does not symbolize the end of cooking”.Since 2021, Gingko has strategically positioned herself to build resilience among teen mothers by creating a support structures and a safe space for them, where they can restore, remodel and revamp their confidence, resilience and courage despite the hiccup faced.

    Gingko countinues to be intentional in mitigating the effects of teen pregnancy at national and regional levels by constantly ensuring teen mothers’ voices are amplified and their needs, priorities and aspirations are prioritized through their personal cultivation and development.
