This project will provide psychosocial support (PSS) and skills training to marginalized married girls, adolescent mothers and pregnant girls in Malawi, to improve their own well-being and their babies’ health. PSS will assist adolescents to develop resilience and manage stress caused by poverty, forced marriage, gender-based violence, unwanted pregnancies and social stigma. Empowering them with parenting skills, nutritional care, child care and stimulation, they will develop strong bonds with their infants and improve early brain development within the first 1,000 days of the baby’s life. Working closely with Community Health Workers to ensure access to health services and the Malawi College of Medicine, PSS and health education skills training will be offered by trained facilitators at weekly group sessions. Babies’ health and progress will be monitored through Babies' Health Passports.
