Challenge

1 in 5 girls are not attending school due to lack of suitable consistent menstrual hygiene and management products and facilities. Completion of basic primary education for girls in Uganda and transition to secondary education remain a big gender equality challenge in rural areas. According to statistics 23% of girls of girls between 12 and 18-years dropout of school when they begin their menstruation,10% of these are in Kisoro district.

Solution

The project will enable girls complete their basic primary education and in turn support them to transition to secondary Education by: Distribution of re-usable sanitary pads to girls identified to be at the on-set of their menstrual periods Conducting sessions on sexual reproductive health Construction of Girls' menstrual management facility(toilet and washing facility) Construction of a boarding facility for girls transitioning to secondary education at the nearest public secondary school

Long-Term Impact

Enabling girls access education by providing quality facilities will reduce on school dropout,teenage pregnancies and early marriages hence this will spur socio-economic transformation of target communities . Girls in schools who are given information on their reproductive health and gender rights feel more comfortable to express themselves about their body changes, puberty struggles and menstruation rather than opting for SILENCE which forces them out of school and eventual consequences.
