knickers and pads keep girls in schools in Uganda



TYDI-Uganda will provide knickers and pads to the girl child in schools in Northern Uganda. This will help reduce the rate at which a girl child drops out of school due to the fear of being laughed at and teased due to lack of a knicker and a sanitary pad especially for girls in their adolescence stages. Many parents can afford only one knicker or even none were as only pieces of cloth are used as pads for the girls. This has forced many into marriage and those at school have remained dormant

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Over 80% of the girl child who begin school in northern have not gotten a chance to finish up to a certain level of education they are meant to. Many have dropped out due to a number of reasons of which lack of knickers and pads is among the major reasons for their failure to finish a certain level of education. Although the government is working hard by providing free education to all, many parents can not afford additional school requirements like uniforms, knickers and pads forcing many out

How will this project solve this problem?

TYDI-Uganda will provide knickers and pads to over 5000 girl students as well as training them in basic ways of maintaining personal hygiene. A knicker and pad distribution center will be set up in a number of schools to help in the distribution of the knickers.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will provide knickers and pads to 5000 girl students hence keeping them in school, reducing the rate of girl child drop outs as well as increasing their performance in school and participation in co curricular activities. This will help brighten the future for these young girls.
