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
