Single mothers and their babies often lead difficult
lives due to the difficulty young parents have in finding work in light
of their typically poor academic backgrounds.

Civic Groups Campaign for Single Mom’s Education: from the article:

Campaigner Song Eun-kyung, a manager at the welfare group, said
providing second educational chances for these mothers is extremely
important because it secures them the chance to be with their children


“Those who take the tests and receive higher education tend to accept
the barriers and prejudices around them but also fight against them.
They later find their lot easier than those who don’t. They are less
reluctant to identify themselves as single mothers and have greater joy
in life,” she said.


“In this way, we can reduce the number of abandoned children. We can
also save our country from being one of largest adoptee-exporting
countries,” she said.
