This Is Hope
Feminine Hygiene Kits
Shockingly, 86% of girls in Uganda miss an education because of menstrual periods.
In Uganda, menstruation is largely considered unclean and taboo. Stigmatized because of a lack of education and hygiene management, girls often choose to, or are forced to, drop out of school due to a lack of sanitary items and the lack of washroom facilities at their schools.
This Is Hope is working to provide girls hygiene kits to help them stay in school and receive an education. When girls aren't in school, not only do they not get an education, but they become more vulnerable to rape, early marriage and abuse.
Our kits include:
One bar of soap
Two plastic bags (one for holding dirty pads and one for washing pads)
A drawstring bag
The average cost of these kits are $10 for us to provide. If you would like to help us provide these hygiene kits to girls and women in Uganda, please use the donate button below.
