The Wider Image: Schools close and student pregnancies rise in lockdown Kenya
Jackline Bosibori wept when she found out she was pregnant. The 17-year-old's mother, who is raising six kids alone, collapsed in their one-room home. They had been repeatedly threatened with eviction and couldn't afford another mouth to feed. "If I was in school, this could have not happened," said Bosibori, who wants to become a lawyer. With schools closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and her mother out selling vegetables on the roadside, Bosibori got involved with a man in his twenties. When she told him she was pregnant, he stopped answering her calls. Global lockdowns could lead to rising rates of adolescent pregnancy, non-governmental organisations working on reproductive health have warned. In Kenya, some preliminary data suggests that is happening. REUTERS/Monicah Mwangi TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SEARCH "KENYA LOCKDOWN PREGNANCIES" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
