Did you know...

Of all Ugandan girls who are enrolled in school over 6% drop out around 11 years of age; shortly after they start menstruation!

How you can help

To support Ugandan girls to stay in school an education program is provided to teach the girls, boys and parents/guardians about the normal body changes girls go through in their lives, including menstruation. Material is provided for girls and women to sew inexpensive, washable sanitary pads. Each girl gets 3 pads so they are not embarrassed to stay in school during their menstruation time.
