28-5-2018, Reuseable Pads Made By Suubi SS Tailoring Students

The recent academic holiday period at Suubi Secondary School saw our tailoring students given the opportunity to participate in a wonderful initiative; making reusable pads. Through studies carried out in Uganda it has been found female students miss up to eight days of study, each school term, because they are having their periods. This translates into 11% of the total learning days in a year. This valuable time missed in class is hard for the girls to make up and may account for why girls are dropping out of high school. With this in mind we are thrilled to see our reusable pad initiative expanding. This is sure to make the challenge of the girls monthly cycle far easier to cope with and lessen the number of absent days. Read more about this fabulous initiative!
