by Uganda Youth Skills Training Organisation Vetted since 2011 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

Due to increased drop out number of girls in schools, a donor should care about our project because we will buy sanitary pads and give them to 50 poor girls in a school.The project will keep 40% of girls in school. We have changed from reusable sanitary pads to buying disposable pads after finding out that these girls have been failing to maintain the hygiene of the pads and as well as coming in of rotary club giving out disposable ones but again not able to serve them all the support.

Challenge

The challenge is that girls are dropping out of school due to lack of sanitary pads. This is now common in developing countries,Uganda being one with most of the drop outs. Research done by Build Africa has shown that bigger number of girls in Uganda are dropping out of school tremendously. Our project will benefit poor girls in one of the schools in our catchment areas.

Solution

The project will help to keep the girls in school since a research by Build Africa indicated that they do drop out of school due to lacking sanitary pads for use during their menstruation periods. Something that has made their education a disaster,as one of the child was quoted saying that she was laughed at by the boys that she had slaughtered a hen.

Long-Term Impact

With this project, we are going to increase on the enrollment of girls in schools by 40% for a long period of time since they will get assured of the sanitary pads. ironed.50 young girls will be reached with this project.
