Who we are

Inspiring Hope

Hannah’s Sanctuary is being founded to offer support to young unmarried pregnant girls, who find themselves in the difficult situation of being pregnant with seemingly no hope and no life options.

The emotional trauma associated with an unplanned pregnancy in adolescents can be overwhelming with consequences including mental health issues and suicide , socioeconomic disadvantages, ostracisation and school drop out​.

 

Hannah’s Sanctuary will seek to provide an alternative choice to pregnancy termination for such women and provide them with practical support.

Hannah’s Sanctuary will work to inspire hope in affected young women and build a godly image in males and females through a Christian based discipleship programme in schools and colleges.

 

Services and support will be provided to candidates within 14-23 age range. Hannah’s Sanctuary will operate via a helpline and by partnering with key service providers in the medical, educational and childcare sectors.

 

Our operations will be in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. 

OUR VISION

To provide support to young unmarried expectant women who find themselves in the challenging situation of being pregnant with seemingly no life options and to develop a godly self-image through Christian discipleship on school and college campus in both males and females. 

OUR MISSION

By providing access to pre and post natal care, by providing support that encourages such young women to remain in or return to education where feasible, by providing access to training and childcare.

At the core of the ministry is what we term “Godly Identity". This is teaching to make people aware of who they really are in Christ. It encompasses topics such as “Identity in Christ", "Integrity of God’s word", “God’s kind of love” and “The Power of Godly Relationships”.
