Evaline (16 years) has been among the 72 girls we supported at Fuda Primary School in Adjumani Refugee settlement. She sat her Primary Leaving Exams in 2023 and her results were recently released by the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) and Evaline was able to score Aggregate 15 placing her in a very strong Second Grade. 

Thanks to the support from you our donors, we managed to keep Evaline in school by ensuring all her menstrual health needs were catered for. Its this support that enabled Evaline to consitently attend her class works and improve her grades. According to school records, Evaline used to miss out 5-10 days every months especially during her menstrual periods because she did not have pads and feared redicule and stigma from boys. Her grades were not good BUT since Voice for Humanity Uganda partnered with the school and provided Menstrual Health Kits and menstrual Health Education to the girls, Evaline's and her other peers grades started to improve. ''I am not surprised that Evaline and other girls who sat their primary leaving exams in 2023 performed better than for other years, because there enough support from Voice for Humanity Uganda which gave no room for these girls to miss out on their class works''. said Mr. John who is the Headteacher of Fuda Primary School.

In 2024, we plan to reach out to refugee 1200 girls in their reproductive age with Menstrual Kits and Menstrual Education so as to keep them in school and ensure their grades improve. Your continued support towards this project will go along way in promoting refugee girl child education in Adjumani-Uganda.
