Summary

The initiative aims to construct 5 drain-able girl friendly VIP latrines of 5 stances each with wash room, provide reliable hand washing facility for girls of menstruating age in the five public primary schools in Uganda. To reduce the high pupil to latrines ratio, and provide a separate girls' pit-latrine to avoid risk of harassment and school drop-out, this will ensure school attendance of girls during menstruation and increase the number of girls with qualifications.

Challenge

At these schools, girls are faced with poor sanitary facilities -inadequate hand washing facilities, no privacy and non-functioning or insufficient toilets. This reduces their school attendance and often leads to girls dropping out of school during their menstrual periods. Adolescent girls are often absent from school due, in part, to inadequate, sanitation facilities. At all times, girls need facilities that provide privacy, security to avoid risk of harassment.

Solution

With your donations, we prioritize to retaining girls at primary and are able to transit to high school or college, also help school girls to manage their menstrual periods more easily. Through provision/construction of 5 girl-friendly VIP pit-latrines with hand washing facilities and train girls on reusable sanitary pads making to improve on their hygiene, we will enable girls to manage their periods and improve girls' education.

Long-Term Impact

By responding to this situation, it is anticipated that retention, transition rates amongst girls at individual schools could improve by up to 60%. Girls will therefore be able to go to school, participate in school activities thereby ensuring a holistic development i.e. mental, physical and social development. These 5 public schools shall serve as role models in providing safer girls' sanitation facilities management and capacity building for young but sexually maturing girls.
