Summary

The Girl2Girl Initiative will provide hands on training to 250 adolescent girls and young teenage mothers in making Reusable Butterfly Sanitary pads for adolescent girls, women and young teenage mothers in both rural and semi-urban communities of Uganda. As the world is still struggling on containing the spread of Covid-19, many adolescent young girls in Uganda continue to face greater challenges of poor menstrual hygiene due to lack of access to free and low-cost sanitary pads.

Challenge

The challenge is that girls are dropping out of school due to lack of sanitary pads. This is now common in developing countries Uganda being one with most of the drop outs. Through our previous engagements and pilot Reusable Sanitary Pads Making project survey has shown that bigger number of adolescent girls in Uganda drop out school tremendously due to lack of funds to afford disposable pads. In Uganda, girls miss an average of 45 days of school due to their menstrual cycles challenges.

Solution

The Butterfly Reusable pad kits will give adolescent girls and young teenage mothers means to hygienically take good care of themselves during their menstrual cycles as this will aid them to fully participate and stay in school. Along, by training adolescent girls in making their own Butterfly reusable sanitary pads, this program will also provide vocational skills and social entrepreneurship skills them to build a more robust community that cares for the environment.

Long-Term Impact

With the "Butterfly Reusable Pads" Making project, we aim to empower 250 adolescent girls and teenage mothers with hands-on skills on Reusable pads making, mask making, business venture development and making strategies. We also aim at increasing the enrolment of girls in schools by at least 25% for a long period of time since the trained girls will be in position to transfer skills to other girls and also be able to produce the Butterfly Reusable Pads for themselves.
