Red MAPA was born based on the experience of Fundación Kaleidos and Children Action developing the Jakairá program. It is a project that brings together organizations that accompany maternity and paternity in adolescence, providing training, institutional strengthening and technical support.
Red MAPA works around the awareness of the community and promotion of rights to accompany adolescents in their maternity and paternity, and favor their social inclusion once the child is born. In order to do this, the organizations that are part of Red MAPA work every day with adolescents so that they can develop their personal projects.
In Red MAPA, organizations develop comprehensive work strategies with an interdisciplinary approach, exchanging learning and experiences; while co-creating a set of good practices. In this way, it seeks to restore the basic rights of adolescent mothers and fathers, guaranteeing them education, health and insertion in the world of work.
In Argentina, 7 out of 10 pregnancies in adolescents between the ages of 15 and 19 are unintentional, and 8 out of 10 pregnancies in girls under 15 are also unintentional, but with an aggravating circumstance: the pregnancy is usually the result of violence or sexual abuse. Bearing this in mind, the work carried out by Red MAPA is key to building bridges so that more and more adolescents can be accompanied and achieve their personal goals.
