Girls Hygiene Kits

In St Timothy’s School some older girls tend to miss lessons each month when they have their period.  After a demonstration workshop in Pewsey, an army of volunteers made 100 reusable kits for the girls and a video in the local language Zande to show how to use and wash the items.

One of our trustees took the kits to Kampala in February 2020 and they were transported to Nzara and distributed to the girls. The next stage in this project is to help some local women to set up a microfinance project to make and sell the kits locally.
