Help support the community’s teenage girls through adolescence
Things are tough enough for the children and adults that we work with but the girls reaching adolescence have extra needs to meet. For example many girls across Uganda miss out on schooling and other activities due to a shortage of sanitary products and underwear during their monthly menstruation cycle. Additionally many young women are unable to reach their educational potential due to unplanned teenage pregnancies.
As well as supplying sanitary products to the teenage girls in our local communities we deliver well-being education and sex education to both teen boys and girls to help prevent unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. With your help we also hope to improve the situation for the young women by empowering them through general and occupational education and to provide support and training to young single parent families so that they can make a better life for themselves and their children.
