Many times some girls are forced to abandon school because they can’t stand the humiliation that comes with menstruation especially if they are unable to afford sanitary pads to manage their menstruation periods.
These girls could be orphans and have no one to run to in such moments. As a result we are having many uneducated girls and yet its possible to support them if we only put our heart to it. Many of us are who we are today because someone held our hand and supported us while growing up.
At Raising Teenagers Uganda we are working to keep girls in school by supporting the less advantaged ones with sanitary pads and underwear so that they can attend school with dignity and pride. We help to build their self esteem and encourage them to report any form of abuse inflicted on them.
We always receive the sanitary pads from kind hearted individuals and institutions in the last 2years, we have been able to support over 3000 girls. Its amazing to see them in school and ready to complete their education.
Are you better positioned and are able to support such girls, please do and give them some light.
