14-year-old Belgian school kids shocked as pregnant girl joins their class

Teen pregnancy isn’t a very common problem in Belgium, but in countries like Cambodia or Ecuador it’s much more common due to poverty, discrimination and a lack of sex education. Because they’ve fallen pregnant, these girls have to quit school. And without a decent education their chances of a good job and promising future are very slim. By bringing the topic into a Belgian school, Plan Belgium makes people more aware that every girl should have the right to quality education. To show the UN that girls’ education is a priority, Plan International aims to get four million raised hands. For every raised hand a young girl will be able to go to school. You can support the campaign too, by raising your hand for girls on http://www.planbelgie.be/ or http://www.planbelgique.be/
