The challenge is that girls are dropping out of school due to lack of sanitary pads. This is now common in developing African countries,Research done by Build Africa has shown that bigger number of girls in Uganda and other African countries including South Africa are dropping out of school tremendously. Our project will benefit poor girls in one of the schools in our catchment areas.
The project will help to keep the girls in school since a research by Build Africa indicated that they do drop out of school due to lacking sanitary pads for use during their menstruation periods. Something that has made their education a disaster,as one of the child was quoted saying that she was laughed at by the boys that she had slaughtered a hen.
