Happy One Year!

Thank you thank you thank you! I can say of behalf of Kasiisi Project, that we could not be more excited (or wonderfully surprised) to have reached one year on GlobalGiving and to have raised over $64,000 from almost 1,500 unique donors!

This year has been quite remarkable for the progress of the Kasiisi Project's Girls Support Program.

A brief summary:

Having conducted baseline research for the peer education program, and connecting Kasiisi Project and MakaPads, we are finally moving toward more tangible progress. The Community Health Worker has begun conducting health classes for the 5 primary schools, and after one more training session with the Jane Goodall Institute, will begin training peer leaders herself. After this summer, a curriculum for health education will be integrated into the school curriculum. The five primary schools each have their own set of risks, so ensuring the curriculum is adaptable to the specifics of each environment will be a challenge. At Kigarama Primary School, Girl Friendly Latrines are in the process of being built (see previous entry for images). MakaPads will be increasingly dispersed (to phase out the imported sanitary pads) to the schools starting in September, and hopefully with the next 6 months, production of the pads in the Kabarole District will begin.

THANKS so much for such a successful First Year on GlobalGiving!

As always, please respond with comments, suggestions, concerns...
