Challenge

There are over 10,000 women immigrant from war ravaged northern district of Uganda currently living in Masindi, the common economic activity is sugarcane growing or work in the fields. There is high level of malnutrition because of low food production, low literacy levels especially among rural girls and poor healthy conditions. Families affected by HIV are most affected as they are marginalized and have no sustainable income to support their families meet daily basic needs and medical care.

Solution

The Education programme shall support girls from HIV affected families with reusable pads and basic scholastic materials by training on skills to make reusable pads. Every household will be supported with passion fruit seedlings which can be harvested within six months of planting. Every girl will acquire 1 pair of pads per year and 5 seedlings of passion fruits to plant from the onset of the programme. The fruit shall be sold as a group to attract bulky purchase by the juice companies

Long-Term Impact

The education program shall support 200 rural girls to keep at school and also get some skills and income from fruits to assist in buying basic scholastic materials to sustain their life and education so as to achieve higher level of education. Bring social, economic and environmental development e.g increased schools enrollment and retention, healthy girls healthy mind. Parents will be proud of their girls graduating just like boys and improving their standard of living.
