Redirection Project | Teen Parenthood
This intervention focuses on how the Ford Foundation perceives single mothers, and how it presents and portrays them. Through the MDRC publications archive, I attempt to comment on important facts concerning adolescent mothers and how Project Redirection seeks to guide them through the creation of specific mechanisms, such as community women. This operation is performed by creating a booklet on which the commentary is made, and in which phrases have been highlighted to introduce criticism on the program. At the same time, on the occasion of highlighting the Sisterhood of Black Single Mothers program in the analysis, a comparison is made with the Sister to Sister program, which was carried out earlier by Project Redirection, and the differences in the way young mothers are managed and their needs are highlighted. A common element of these two programs are women who help teenage mothers.
