Challenge

Period Poverty has gained significant attention in the UK & US, but its impact is even more pronounced in developing countries. In Uganda, where the average inflation rate is 8% and 42.2% of the population lives below the poverty line of $2.15 per day, the issue of Period Poverty is alarming. 25% of the female population are aged 10-19 and experience school absenteeism because they can't afford menstrual hygiene products. Sadly, some girls even abandon education completely upon reaching puberty.

Solution

Ty Cariad Africa is working in partnership with Victory Child Care Project to deliver its successful Keeping Girls in School project. With your support, we are dedicated to providing 800 vulnerable girls in 5 schools with reusable sanitary towels, underwear, training and sensitisation. Helping them to stay safe and stay in school.

Long-Term Impact

As with the previous projects, we expect to make a huge impact in the lives of these girls. 800 children and 10 staff in 5 schools - 150 children in Primary 5, 250 children in Primary 6 and 400 in Primary 7. The project aims to achieve the following outcomes: Increase the school attendance rate among girls in Government-aided schools; Reduce the school dropout rate among girls; Improve the hygiene and sanitation conditions in schools.
