School Prank Turned Into Awareness of Teen Pregnancy in Developing Nations


Think back for a minute to the days when you were in junior or senior high. What would you have thought or said (or what did you actually think or say) if a new girl who was pregnant joined your school? Did you relate to her differently than you would have had she not been pregnant? Did you have a clear understanding of her situation?

The children in this Duval Guillaume video for Plan Belgium undergo a bit of a prank when a "pregnant" girl joins their ranks. The video, highlighting the "unusual sight" of teen pregnancy in Belgium, calls attention to the plight of young women in developing countries where teen pregnancy is more common and the challenges are a bit more serious than undergoing peer pressure-fueled ridicule from a few teenagers.
