(Scroll down for video) Consumers were shocked to see pregnant schoolgirl mannequins at popular shopping malls in Venezuela.

In Caracas, the mannequins were dressed by two local charities in order to highlight the rate of teenage pregnancy in the country, which is among the highest in South America.

According to a recent survey, 23 percent of all babies are born to mothers who are under the age of 18.

Some shoppers were very surprised by the display of pregnant schoolgirl mannequins at stores selling clothing for girls up to the age of 15.

The mannequins in Caracas, will remain on display for at least a month, and if successful, the campaign will be rolled out nationwide.
