Inspiring change. Motherhood at a tender age is a daunting experience that not many recover from easily. However, Solome Nanvule did not let an unplanned pregnancy at 19 stand in the way of her aspiration. Not only did she go on to build a future for herself, but also reached out to fill the gap in the lives of many teenage girls who had faced the same predicament.

Since 2011 PTMOF has worked on two cycles a year with 50 mothers over a six month period for a total of over 100 women have graduated from a structured program.
About The Founder

Fr Pelletier had started an organisation at the parish called Excavellian Movement with Nanvule as the group leader. Her qualities became outstanding as a leader which prompted the Catholic Father to take keen interest in the young girl.
