Project Report | Jan 8, 2024
Eco-friendly Menstrual Kits Keep Girls in School

By Miriam Nakiyaga | Team Leader

This report showcases the impact of your donation towards the success of our eco-friendly menstrual kits project. By providing girls in underserved communities with sustainable and reusable menstrual pads and cups, we are addressing not only their health and dignity but also contributing to environmental conservation. This report aims to highlight the positive outcomes achieved through your support.
Summary:
Over the past year, our organization has implemented an innovative initiative focused on promoting eco-friendly menstrual kits. The primary objectives were to offer access to reusable sustainable menstrual kits to ensure girls attend school without the fear of staining their uniforms, leaks or discomfort,  reduce waste from disposable sanitary pads in land fills, improve menstrual hygiene management, and empower girls to reach their full potential. Through collaboration with local partners, we successfully distributed 4000 menstrual kits to 4000 girls in Eastern Uganda and conducted educational workshops on menstrual health and sustainability.
Impact Highlights:
1. Environmental Conservation: By switching from disposable menstrual products to reusable kits, we estimate that we have prevented the disposal of 1000 kilograms of waste, reducing our carbon footprint substantially.
2. Economic Empowerment: Through the production and distribution of menstrual kits, we have supported local women by creating sustainable livelihood opportunities. This has helped improve their financial stability and autonomy.
3. Enhanced Menstrual Hygiene: By providing eco-friendly menstrual kits, we have improved access to safe and hygienic menstrual materials, reducing the risk of infections and related health complications among girls in underserved Bugiri, Mukono and Tororo communities.
4. Girls' Education. The project has supported 4000 girls to stay in school and complete their education during the academic year of 2023.
Success Stories:
Akoth who is a 15 year old young girl from Asinge in Tororo district was able to attend school all through 2023 with the provision of resusable eco-friendly menstrual kit. Akoth's school attendance greatly improved, allowing her to pursue her education without interruption.
 Apolot,  a single mother from Mudakoli learned how to make her reusable pads and  became a part of our local production team. Through making and selling these eco-friendly kits, she has been able to provide for her family by generating an income.
Future Plans:
To sustain the positive impact of this project, we aim to expand our reach to more communities in need. We plan to establish partnerships with local governments and organizations to ensure long-term sustainability. Additionally, we will continue conducting awareness campaigns and workshops to promote menstrual health, environmental conservation, and economic empowerment.
Conclusion:
Through the generous support of donors like you, our eco-friendly menstrual kits initiative has made significant strides in empowering girls and women, protecting the environment, and promoting sustainable development. We believe that by continuing to invest in this project, we can drive lasting change and improve the lives of girls in uganda. Your continued support will help us expand our impact and further contribute to a greener, healthier future for all.
