Second Term report

By Teresa Masale | Project officer

Hello Mulibwanji?


I hope you are well, I just want to give you a brief report of the project. This is the second term in the 2022-2023 academic year. There was a delay in opening schools due to a worst Cholera outbreak that spread into all the 29 districts of Malawi. In order to create a safe environment for learning, Ministry of Education extended the first term holiday with 2 weeks so that they put in place measures of safeguarding learners from cholera. Due to the delay, ‘Go for girls’ project activities resumed its activities in the month of February.


We conducted reusable sanitary pads sewing training in Chiwamba Community Day Secondary

School, Chipasula Secondary School, Mseche Community Day Secondary School and SASAROMA private secondary school. The trainings were conducted to prevent the girls from using unhygienic sanitary rags that puts them at risk of infection. We managed to train a total of 101 girls in reusable sanitary pads sewing and the girls were excited to gain sewing skills as they will be able to sew more pads for themselves. They are also expected to train more girls so that it has the multiplier effect.


Lastly I just want to say thank you for your continued support that you give to our project and the people of Malawi.
