For three days, 30 girls, mentors, and teachers came together to analyze the causes of teen pregnancy in Kigali, Rwanda. Through a collaborative mural, artist Willy Karekezi and mentor Neema Icyshiaste led the girls in an analysis of the root causes of teen pregnancy.
During the final community event, each participant had the opportunity to explain their creations in front of the wall to the audience of proud family members, friends, and local leaders.
