keep a girl in school – watoto , uganda


The Facts

  • One of the key reasons why girls drop out of school is because of menstrual cycles and a lack of proper protection, such as underwear and sanitary products.
  • Once a girl leaves school she is expected to do daily tasks that place her in dangerous places in order to complete her house hold duties.
  • When a girl in Uganda is not educated, her children have less of a chance surviving birth and the first 5 years of life.


The Need

If we can provide sanitary products that allow a girl to stay in school, we break the cycle of poverty for her and for her children.
