Challenge

South Sudan's civil war, which began in December 2013, continued in 2016 -2017 with serious impact on women and children being displaced in Uganda. A survey conducted by United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees noted that up to 70% of the South Sudan refugee girls are shying away from studies due to girls experience shame, embarrassment, and discomfort during menstruation due to the inadequate access to affordable and preferred private and safe facilities at schools.

Solution

By providing training on the making the re-usable sanitary pads, sensitizing girls on menstrual hygiene management and Provision of girls' underwear, girls are encouraged and empowered to study with confidence among boys, and the level of stigmatization will be reduced. Person hygiene will be improved and the level of school drop outs will be reduced.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide sanitary pads and other services to 2000 girls hence allowing many girls to complete their primary education and maintain their health hygiene. In addition, with the training on making re-usable sanitary pads, the organization aims at reaching over 4000 girls both in the refugee settlements and within the host communities. This will increase girl's performance at school and reduce drop out.
