Home > What we do > Pads for Girls

Why is this important?

Young women often drop out of school when they are menstruating as they do not have the necessary hygiene products. We will be raising funds to provide a “menstrual kit” to every young woman at Semei Kakungulu School and the older girls at Tikkun Olam Primary School. Funds will be collected by Global Village Connect and given directly to Days For Girls. Days For Girls in Namutumba make these kits and also educate girls. They are changing the status quo, through quality menstrual care solutions, health education, and income-generation opportunities.

About the pads

The pads last for 2 years. Each costs approximately $13.

Impact of your gift

Your donation of $25 will pay for 2 kits, $50 will pay for 4 kits and $100 will pay for 8 kits.

Our goal is to raise $4,000 to provide kits for every young woman currently enrolled. Thank you for helping to educate young women in the Abuyudaya community and help them to stay in school. As we have learned, educating women is the best way to ensure that the next generation will be successful.

Thank you for your support!
