When children, especially girls, cannot access private and decent sanitation facilities in their schools and learning environments, the right to education is threatened.  Our commitment is to build programs that will increase confidence, knowledge, and skills – and improve access to materials and facilities – for adolescent girls in schools. 


Our plan + SDG 6
Bringing access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all paying special attention to the needs of women and girls
We are currently implementing our menstrual hygiene management project in primary schools found in the rural areas of Uganda.  While the primary beneficiaries are the girls that have reached menarche and those within the menarche age, the program has grown to encompass boys, teachers and parents, creating awareness amongst them to support the girls.
This is how we do it
We create a space and culture where no girl has to be discriminated just because she is experiencing her period.

Dialogues with parents and teachers and construction of MHM facilitative infrastructure like the MHM dedicated rooms and female friendly latrine facilities. The Rain Water Harvesting facilities constructed have also provided girls with water needed to wash themselves without having to walk long distances to look for water out of school. All this has been done in a bid to increase access to safe, private and comfortable spaces for the girls to manage their menstruation.

Together, we can foster an environment where every girl has the resources and knowledge needed to navigate this natural aspect of life without hindrance.
