Implentation of the activities under the Sanitary Facilities for Rural schools in Uganda project  has started with  a capacity building  session for 20 girls and thier senior woman teacher. The two hours session focused  on training  these girls on how to make reusable menstrual pads.  It was  conducted at Kaliiro Primary School  in Lyantonde District. This has created a strong  peer group with knowlege and skills in making reusable pads.This group will further  transfer the skills and knowledge to other girls in the school.
