The many benefits of producing renewable sanitary pads
With the fabulous support of materials (scissors, needles, threads, cloth and soft polyphon) from the Sacramento chapter of Period. Inc., and the gift of a sewing machines from a WWK donor, the hardworking women of our local partner in Kiboga, Uganda is producing renewable sanitary pads for the girls and women in their community, as well as for the girls and women in other WWK local community partners across the country. With this effort more girls will stay in school, more moms will thrive, and more low-income villages and settlements will transform their economy and well-being. Additionally, the NGO trained all members in GBV (gender-based violence and sexual reproductive health) as they themselves were trained by WWK’s network partner Girl Up Initiative Uganda.
