Your donation will go a long way in supporting the orphaned and needy girls remain in school during their periods. This has made most of them drop out of school due to lack of sanitary towels services and the scorn they have kept on receiving from boys and other girls in school when by accident they wet their clothing while in school. This has turned out to be an ordeal and shame state that has made them loose their self-esteem.
The challenges of the community are girls from needy homes dropping out of school resulting to poor academic performance due to missing school during their menses. Some drop out of school after they have embarrassing incidents in school when the cotton wool or pieces of cloth get soaked and stain their uniform with blood. Lack of school fees and uniforms also lead to orphaned girls to drop out of school.The beneficiaries of this project are needy girls and orphans from the poorest households.
Our vision is to see poor children, especially those affected by HIV/Aids, get quality education and equal opportunity in educational achievement. The long term result is restoration and surety of better future. After analyzing the problems that hinder needy children from getting education we found several needs. These are: learning materials, tuition fees and lack of sanitary towels To achieve our goal we need to involve the community in providing the services through donations.
The impact of our sanitary pads support is rising of academic performance of the beneficiaries. The impact of education sponsorship is more evident in parents rather than direct beneficiaries-children. Many are able to live even longer because the greatest fear and stress of their children education is taken care of. The project is going to provide sanitary towels to 1000 girls yearly and sponsor 200 orphans with education bursary yearly.
