Actions of success become challenging when not able to share but success is manifested when sharing with others, this reminds me of two statement l attentively heard from my former mentor, Naboth, who was also my former lecturer in St Joseph’s technical institute, he used to tell me that Rich people are in the grave and that a problem shared is a half solved.

All along UYSTO had wanted to help provide sanitary pads to some vulnerable girls in poor urban schools but due to limited financial constraints, found it hard to proceed with the idea but later my mind insisted that there people outside there in the world interested to give l listened to what my heart told me and went ahead to post this project on Globalgiving, the best worldwide fundraising site, within a short time, world donors started contacting and appreciating me the work done. Few months later, they started donating. Sincerely, hard it not been responding to my heart's communication, those benefiting from Donate to buy Sanitary pads for 50 girls in school project, may be would not  have proceeded with their education career and at one time l would die with this Rich  idea, confirming  my mentor's statement," the rich people are in the grave" Similarly if l had not shared my problem of girls not having sanitary pads in poor urban schools it wouldn’t have been supported and these girls education career would just weather off. l thank God that l shared the idea and you were able and still able to see these girls attain basic education through your donations to provide with them materials that help them handle individual personal hygiene, indeed a problem shared is a half solved.

We would also like to inform you that through the expertise and the exposer we have gained from implementing this project, we have been able to be given  a project by Erasmus + under a consortium of 12 organizations from countries below: Norway,Portugal,Poland,Greece,Belgium,Spain,Philippines,Sweden,United States ,Kenya, Uganda and India. The project called PERIOD EMPOWERMENT NETWORK.

Thank you very much our beloved donors, our journey is soon ending, we request you to continue supporting us in this cause and take time to watch the video https://youtu.be/UMvKP9th9xY  about the facts of the project you are supporting, by the senior woman Rita at Namungona Kigobe Primary School.

Project coalition implementation like any other partnership, is one of those that we at Uganda Youth Skills Training Organization (UYSTO), we have started believing in.

We started this project" Donate to buy sanitary pads for 50 girls in school" we were with you, our donor and you global giving.3 of us have all long been together implementing this project. Its due to this project that have also got number of people interested to be our partners in this project. Our project has become one of the education resource for students from the universities to do internship.

We have attached 3 social worker students.2 from Makerere university and 1 from Metropolitan university to access how communities and civil society organizations are responding to empowering a girl child and how best these parties are trying to have the future woman living a responsible citizen. We are happy to be attached to this school as intern students, we expect to discover a lot and we thank the management of Uganda Youth skills Training Organization for this wonderful education opportunity, Mercy said while being interviewed by her internship field supervisor.

We believe that when one woman is educated, you will have educated the whole nation, that’s why several parties are joining us to have the future woman be a concerned citizen by attaining education through our sanitary pads distribution intervention programs.

Closely related, we have also internally secured 2 boxes of sanitary pads from one of the community member who liked what we are doing, she is Anna who is the head teach of an infantry school "St johns nursery schools" in a place called Namungona Kuluyinja. This has to be distributed in this coming phase.

The headteacher of the benefiting school" Namungona Kigobe primary school" sends his  thankful message to  all those parties that tremendously contribute to the achievement of this project.

It was like this time, when a severe headache attached me, wondering what the hell this was, poor me Racheal, without realizing that the time for me to become a woman had reached, on the second day late in evening while on the bed, felt something an usual with my life, only to turn around found blood stains, rushed to my elder sister and she told me that I was now a woman, that was the beginning of what the real menstruation is on my side, since that time, my life did not remain the same, kept on with heavy flows that would keep me off the classes for over a week. Something that was a night mare to my mama, her being a single mama, it was hard for her to avail me with sanitary pads, I cut almost all the garments inside the house both belonged to me and to everyone at home to near finishing them.

The partnership of Uganda Youth Skills Training Organization with my school Namunggona Kigobe Primary school, answered my worries. My periods have a heavy flow to the extent that I have to change at least 4 times a day. Being one of the most vulnerable girl child in the school, all teachers recorded me as number one on the paper when UYSTO contacted them to list the needy children in the school to benefit from the project. With your support I have never remained home because of the heavy flow and long periods. I’m sure your support is not only felt by us here only but also by the Government of Uganda, rely your empowerment support to us, is a strong impact to Uganda. Menstrual periods are rely affecting the education of most of the girls specially to those whose the parents who cannot afford to buy sanitary pads for their children, I’m lucky that by the time I was planning to dropout of the school, you came in with this project, however i attribute this to the prayers we used to pray with our head teacher on the assembly every morning that we get someone to help us with sanitary pads. Rachael narrated.

 All this was reached on while our field volunteer officers John mery and Jesse was following up the project. His interaction with beneficiaries at school availed Racheal an opportunity to share with us her experience

Racheal's story I think manifests your support's impact, according to the report collected. Figures indicate that there is a tremendous increase in the number of the pupils at school and projections still indicate that it will continue increasing. We still request a doubled support in this ,as the numbers may overwhelm school administration.

The economy is not good, but you have been supporting us to run this project. We appreciate you and praying that one time you happen to come and visit these wonderful girls you are supporting.
