Challenge

The challenge is that when adolescent girls start menstruating in these rural and impoverished areas they often have to miss about a week of school every month due to their lack of feminine sanitary products. This puts them hopelessly behind in school and in most cases they end up getting married at the age of 13 or 17. What makes this situation even more alarming is that high school boys are buying disposable pads and giving them to the girls in exchange for sex.

Solution

in the project we shall distribute reusable sanitary pads to 5000 children of ages 13- 17. They will also be trained how to use them and keep them

Long-Term Impact

-500 girls will know reusable sanitary pads so that they will opt to buy them instead of going for disposable ones -Girls will be motivated to remain in school because there is a cheap solution -Girls will compete favorably with boys in class as they will not miss some school days because of menstruation.
