NOBABY.ORG is an initiative to help teenagers in Memphis, TN gain access to the knowledge and resources needed to prevent unplanned pregnancies. Specifically we believe that providing teenage girls with more guidance, honesty and information will enable more to achieve their own learning and health potential before becoming mothers.
National research shows that at-risk adolescents lack the knowledge and the will to manage pregnancy risk. Our approach is a multi-faceted effort that builds birth control knowledge and the enhanced esteem needed to help a girl resist the pressures of strong outside influences.
With the support of established area organizations for girls and teens, we strive to provide more than just a doctrine of abstinence or contraceptives. Our approach is to assist and raise awareness of holistic health learning environments where participation can lead to better grades, better health and less risk of teen pregnancy.
Our goal is to be direct, candid and clear. Teen pregnancy is a serious problem in our community. And we believe that helping girls take control is the only solution that will make a difference.
