Sanitary Towels Play Girl Child Education

Why can’t women’s sanitation be taken just as seriously as any other healthcare issue? In a study by UNICEF, 1 out of 10 girls in Africa drop out of school because they cannot afford sanitary towels.

Not making menstrual hygiene products freely available to girls hinders their involvement in development and it limits their ability to run their daily life for example school, work and Teens Uganda as anon-profit organization we have come up with a way to ensure that young girls stay in school……..that is why we have partnered with JAWCU among other partners in a project of making affordable re-usable pads as well as training staff members and other stakeholders on how to make them, this will increase access to sanitary towels for the young girls who are in need and can’t afford the ones on the market this would increase the number of girls in school as well avail them with skills on how make them and keep them clean.
