Education is a Powerful Tool

By Frankline | Partner in Africa

We recognize the fact that EDUCATION is one of the most powerful tools for women's empowerment and we want to do all that it takes to keep the girl child in school throughout her learning period.according to our assessment and findings we found out that high percentage of girls in our community are missing the school because of menstruation. stereotypes and poverty.  Each of these issues will negatively influence the life of a girl child and either ends of in early pregnancy, getting HIV/AIDs, early marriage e.t.c leading to poverty in the long run.

We choose to focus on menstruation with a common goal that we don't want menstruation to stop education of a girl and we are responding to this through our re-usable sanitary pads. We have distributed about 3,000 sanitary pads to different school in our community and the results of this is amazing. 

Now girls are able to concentrate in class during their monthly flows, the performance of the girls have seen risen to better grades, Cases of absenteeism for girls of declined significantly, early pregnancy and early marriage  amongst girls have seen declining significantly and we believe that slowly by slowly these girls will be able to transform the entire community to graduate from poverty. 

Thank you for walking with us through this journey, though there are challenges we still face currently, but the success stories we've witnessed and continue witnessing keeps us moving and giving up will never be an option for us. 

The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa.  As you make decisions regarding your giving for the rest of the year, please keep us in mind so we can continue our good work through 2023 and beyond.  If you would like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact Tanya Weaver at
