Thank you!

Hello everyone!

Lots of good news...

First I want to thank you thank you thank you (webale muno, muno, muno) from the girls of Kasiisi Project for contributing to "Affordable Sanitary Pads for 1500 Ugandan Girls" during the recent challenge. As a result of your contributions, we can came in 1st place for number of donors (!) and 2nd place for total funds raised. This means we also received a $3,000 bonus toward the project! Additionally, because we exceeded $4,000 and 50 donors, our project now has a permanent spot on GlobalGiving!

As for project updates... Yesterday, I spoke on the phone Professor Moses Musaazi, the inventor of MakaPads. Sarah and I will work conduct field research with him this summer. Likewise, initial implementation will begin in a few weeks when surveys, interviews, and general preparation begin at the affiliated schools. More to come later in the summer once there is more concrete information to relay.

In the meantime you can follow the progress of this and other programs through the website

Thank you again for all your support. Through your generous donations we will be able to provide the salary for a female community health worker, donate biodegradable sanitary pads to keep girls in school, and open up the possibility to train additional peer leaders through the Jane Goodall Institute (and even more to come in the future).

I also ask that you please comment on our site with any feedback.
