Menstrual Hygiene Day 2017

May 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EAT

28 May 2017 is  Menstrual Hygiene Day  and we will be hosting a conversation about periods in conjunction with Ntungamo Municipality 

We bring together men and women, girls and boys as well as their politicians from the district of Ntungamo SW Uganda.

This year’s theme is Education.

We will explore the impact of Menstural hygiene on a girl’s education.

We will discuss the need to educate boys and men about periods in order to minimise the impact of social norms on women and girls

Our goal is to normalise the conversation about periods and continue the work we started last year. 

At this year’s event we would like to give out 1000 kits to school girls.  This would ensure that girls do not miss school days  because of a lack of access to menstrual absorbents.  We however cannot do this without your help  and you can make a difference for as a little as £1.

  • £1 provides a girl one pod that includes a napkin and a holder
  • £5 provides a girl a full kit
  • £10 provides two full kits
  • £20 provides 4 full kits

The pod and kits last for three years making this a cost effective way of managing periods. Please donate to our Sanitary Pads 4 Girls program today via our Virgin Money page
