The 'Girl Health & Support Project' supports vulnerable girls who suffer through their menstruation period, not having access to sanitary pads or hygiene knowledge. Many end up not attending school or dropping out due to this.

What is the Girl Health & Support Project?

 

The Girl Health & Support Project started in 2014 when Florence Talemwa, A Ugandan mother and secretary of Trinity Primary school assessed the hardships that teenage girls go through while at school.

 

Why does the Girl Health & Support Project exist?

Many vulnerable girls suffer through their menstruation period, not having access to sanitary pads or hygiene knowledge. Many end up leaving school or dropping out due to this and thus miss out on their crucial education.
