Namibia: Mothers With Many Children Are Usually Poor – Geingos

The higher the number of children a woman has the more work she has to do to get herself out of poverty, or move up the harsh economic ladder.
Sharing the wisdom was First Lady Monica Geingos, who said there is an economic cost for a woman to have children without planning for them, as it takes away her ability to work her way out of poverty.
Geingos made a comparison between herself who is a mother of two and a mother who has eight children.
“Now if I had eight schoolchildren, I would not afford eight school fees. The woman who has eight children is likely to put eight babies into poverty,” said Geingos during the donation of HIV/syphilis duo test kits to the Namibia Planned Parenthood Association (Nappa) at the women’s centre in Okuryangava.
