Angel reach foundation AREFU is a community ngo and we embarked on the campaign of helping the girl child in the busoga rural regions who do not have access to sanitary pads. These regions have the highest poverty rate in uganda buying a sanitary pad of 1$ or 3000ugx is really hard and school going girls usually find it hard to to go to school when they are in there periods. Many young mothers and young girls use cloths and fibres risking there life so that to get through these days.
We have undertaken some trainings in schools on this subject and even donated some disposable pads within our means. However, we believe the problem is bigger even within the communities despite the fact that we are limited by funding.
We envisioning a society where young girls and women can freely access information on menstrual health and hygiene to ease this stage of this stage of their life, a society where those who cannot afford buying can afford making reusable sanitary towels for ease of this period; a society where girls and women are not stigmatized for their natural reproductive system among other things
As Angel Reach Foundation uganda AREFU any support rendered towards this cause will be highly appreciated towards our campaign;
"Safer days for our girls and women should be our concern every pad matters so that we keep our girls in school".
