Challenge

A survey done 2015 school children in Kilimanjaro region revealed that about half of the illness found is related to unsanitary conditions and lack of personal hygiene. Underprivileged sanitation results into poor girls' 30% of girls drop out in schools during their monthly menstruation. Situation is more worse to children from poor families who fail to afford sanitary pads to protect themselves.It was confirmed some girls use dirt old clothes to protect themselves during menstruation.

Solution

The project will focus to tackle the issues of poor sanitation and hygiene in 15 schools which affect more girl children especially during menstruation period. Increasing students' knowledge about health and disease prevention is also key focus of this project. Children will be trained how to use local materials to make sanitary pads which will help to overcome financial challenges as a barrier to buy sanitary pads during menstruation cycle as well as serving health care.

Long-Term Impact

The project will promote learning environment for girls by reducing the incidence of sanitation and hygiene-related diseases will be reduced. More girls qualify due to access best job opportunities due to good education background.
