EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES THANKS TO MENSTRUAL HEALTH: DIY NAPTURES FOR GIRLS IN UGANDA

In Uganda, girls miss up to 36 days of school per year due to periods. Reasons include a lack of education, the cultural taboo surrounding the topic, and a lack of access and availability of affordable menstrual hygiene products. The aim of the project is to reduce the number of school days missed by girls in several regions of Uganda by at least 30%. This is to be made possible through a 2-day health and educational training on menstrual health and hygiene as part of the income-generating programs of the Latek Stay Alliance Uganda, as well as a multiplication training with other girls in the village of origin. Here the girls also learn to sew reusable sanitary pads themselves from simple, locally available and inexpensive materials and to overcome period poverty.
