First Pads for Schoolgirls Kits Arrive in Uganda

The Pad Kits Arrive
The Pad Kits Arrive

In March, the first shipment of Pad Kits for the Pads for Schoolgirls program arrived at Future Victory School in Uganda.

As you can see, the girls were excited to receive them.

The Pads for Schoolgirls Project has different facets.  The first phase of the project includes the shipment of Pad Kits made both professionally and by volunteers to answer the immediate need.  The second phase will be the expansion of the Vocational Training Program at Future Victory School to encompass sewing and seamstress skills.  As part of their curriculum, the girls in the program will make Pad Kits that they, in turn, will share with other girls in need.

The “Pay It Forward” approach is one of the trademarks of Humanity Healing International programs.

By helping others, “forgotten” children relearn they are part of a larger community and to become part of the solution for the problems affecting it.

Give a child a fish and they eat for a day.  Teach a child to fish and they eat for a lifetime.

Our goal is to inspire children so that one day they can be the ones teaching.

Our sincere Gratitude to the donors, volunteers and supporters who are making this transformational project possible.

The Pad Kits generate much excitement

First Shipment of Pad Kits to Uganda

Dear Friends,

We are excited to share that the first shipment of Pad Kits has been sent to Uganda.  I am attaching some pictures to show you what they look like and what they include.  These will be given to the first group of girls as well as used as a physical model.

Our Gratitude to Dea Viola of the Baby Flamingo Co for the design and manufacture of the kits.  Our goal was to design a kit that was both simple and inexpensive to make and could be easily reproduced with locally available materials.

We would also like to thank you for your support.  Our project here on GlobalGiving is off to a good start.  Our next step will be to purchase some treadle-type sewing machines and begin to teach the girls in the vocational program at Future Victory School rudimentary sewing skills.

With Gratitude,

Christopher Buck
