Hey!

Thank you so much for your donations towards this project, Mountains of Hope bought a box of re usable sanitary pads for the girls to enable them have safe menstruation periods, however, Mountains of Hope staff thought it wise to have the best sustainable way to solve this problem and as a result Mountains of Hope hired a firm that teaches girls to make their own reusable sanitary pads using locally available materials, as a result 55 people, Men, women, girls and boys were trainied in making of lacal re usable sanitary pads, this means that we will not again need to post a project requesting for more saniatry pads but will only post those requesting training of more girls in making of their own pads, this comprehensive sustainable menstruation management will encourage collective responsibility in menstruation management, before the training, menstruation was only left to mothers and girls, but after the training, it was realized that it was a family responsibility.

Other Globalgiving donors like you also donated towards this training and we combined both fundings (the balance from your donations after purchase of a box of re usable pads)to cover this training.

All participants were taken through a practical process of making locally made pads, and every female and participant went back with their made pads.

James,  a project Leader interviewed some participants and here is the interview between James and Sarah, a 14 year old girl:

James: What are your expectations of this training?

Sarah: I expect to be trained to make my own sanitary pads and to know what materials to use to make them.

James:Have you been buying sanitary pads? and if yes who was buying them for you?

Sarah: No. But I have been using old News papers, I squeeze them until they get soft. If I run short of them I pluck off some pages in my exercise book.

James:When you heard of this training, how did you feel?

Sarah: I felt like the savior has come... "Laughs louder"

Sarah, is one of the girls that will never forget about the day she received this training, she was able to make 2 pads, and these 2 can be used for a whole year according to the expert.

Many girls had dropped out of school and others could absentee them selves because of fear to stain their clothes because of menstruation. Sarah and the rest have called this history now.

Our project is planning to train more 50 people in another community in making the same to enable girls continue their education and also enable mothers do their work better as most of them can not also afford the sold pads.
