But it still feels wrong. We received news that one of the youg women we gave a scholarship to has dropped out of school because she is expecting a baby soon. She is, at most, 14 years old. Father is an adult. If the baby is a boy the father will give her some land to live on and work so she can feed the child but if it is a girl she is out of luck.

It is always difficult to know what to say or do in a situation like this. We have sent words of encouragement to her and let her know that we will continue her scholarship when (if?) she is ready to go back to school after the baby comes. Pray that she does so that both she and her child have a chance to have a better life.
