Summary

RACOBAO plans to provide sanitary towels to 700 young school girls from poor AIDS affected households. Due to poverty, menstruating girls lack sanitary pads and as a result do not attend school until the cycle is over.This increased absenteeism and dropout affects the performance of the girl child. By providing sanitary pads, many girls will concentrate and complete school. With increased performance, the gender gap between boys and girls enrolment and retention in school will be reduced.
