Why we do it
According to the United Nations, 49% of people living in sub-Saharan Africa live on less than $1.25/day. That’s not enough to pay for food, medicine, proper shelter or schooling for their children. Worldwide, 58 million primary school-age children are not in school; 60% are girls. Where we work in Uganda, public school is not free, and poverty is the leading cause of children not attending school.
We focus on building the capacity of women and girls to have knowledge about SRHR and providing access to menstrual facilities including affordable sanitary products. Providing girls with affordable menstrual hygiene products empowers them to go to school all year round and gives them a better future. Learn more
