Ugandan girls can Stay in School

in girls •  10 months ago 

Drop out rates for girls are high in Uganda once they start menstruating, because they have no way to contain the bleeding at school, so they wind up missing one week of school every month. Imani Milele team brought them reusable maxi pads they could wash and use again, each girl got a beautiful bag, two reusable pads and a lesson on the menstrual cycle and reproduction.
Look at these smiles! These girls want to stay in school....IMG_2119.JPG
