Restricted access to menstrual hygiene products leads many girls to miss school during their period, Education, however, is vital to development: Educated girls take better care of themselves and others, in fact when girls in Uganda are on their periods, absenteeism is at 28% compared to 7% during non-period days,
Luckly we were able to sustaines our production and suply to 1,500 girls throug out the year, this increased their attendance in school as a result 835 girls managed to sit for their Primary exams and passed.
We thank you so much for your dedication and and generosity truth to be told:- When girls are educated, poverty drops, economies thrive and communities become more resilient.
We look forward to continue supporting girls to bridge the inequality gap. Please will you consider sharing our story with you family and friends and encourage them to support. Endinng period poverty is possible!
Thank you - Volunteer Action Network Team
