Summary

A powerful combination of planning and keeping girls in schools enables younger women to make positive choices about their own health and future. In Uganda 3 million girls enroll in school for first year. However, by the end of seventh year, 1 million girls drop out of school due to the menstrual health management challenge. The project aims to send back and retain 25,000 disadvantaged girls to school by ensuring access to a female child friendly learning environment.
