“Keep a Girl in School”
Funded by: GFA Consulting Group based in Hamburgh Germany
Partners: Technology for Tomorrow (T4T), Straight Talk Foundation Uganda
Timeline: October 2015 – April 2016
This project focused on providing affordable sanitary pads to girls in Kitebi SSS Rubaga, Kampala. Initially the project donated disposable environmentally friendly pads to the girls form senior one to senior six for a total of over 1000 girls for the first four months and two multi-purpose incinerators. The intended impact was to ensure girls do not miss a single day at school, a disadvantage they have over boys during their menses. We strategically targeted the “National Exams” period as we believe this would have a higher impact. Towards project close, we were able to secure further funding for installation of Solar hand washing facilities, an innovation that had surprising positive impacts on promoting hygiene within the school community.
