Summary

This project will assist young vulnerable girls in Primary and secondary education in Uganda to access sanitary ware. These girls come from very high need families that can not afford sanitary wear (1U$ day). As a result many end by being irregular at school and eventually drop out of school. The project will support 1000 girls from 10 schools as for the start. For sustainability, the project will carryout a feasibility study to establish a cheaper production facility of the sanitary wears
