For many girls in Africa especially in Uganda, education isn’t just important for a brighter future, it’s critical to their survival. Yet, girls often drop out of school simply because they can’t afford feminine hygiene products. .
A lack of education leads to vulnerability. Vulnerability leads to unwanted pregnancy, human trafficking, sexual abuse, domestic violence, HIV, early marriage and a life of no choices.
Together, we can change this. Currently, we are working alongside local schools in communities in Uganda to reduce the dropout rate by providing sanitary products, teaching girls their value in Christ and igniting their passion for education.
Education plays a critical role in breaking the cycle of poverty and violence. When girls are kept in school, they stand a better chance of growing into empowered women who transform their communities and nations.
To support these efforts, we work with the local schools in our local communities to teach good health practices, along with Godly sexual education to girls and boys—teaching young boys to respect and protect their female classmates, and reminding girls that they matter and their bodies are their own.
With the help of partners across the globe, we are keeping girls in school, educated and empowered.SUPPORT THIS CAUSE
