Shout out for the Girls!

These girls love to learn; they take their studies seriously. Yet every month they will miss several days of their schooling. KRDP’s latest project “Shout out for the Girls” is helping to address this problem.

In many parts of the world where there is extreme poverty there is a major problem associated with girls reaching puberty, since sanitary protection is not affordable for most families. The simple answer is for the girls to take a few days off school each month, thus missing chunks of education.

KRDP is trying to address this problem. We have designed a pack which can be distributed to girls in our projects. These are already being produced by groups in the UK and we are working to set up workshops with our partners in Uganda. This will of course be challenging in some of the poorest areas where, resources are very limited – particularly in places where there is no electricity – but we always aim to help people help themselves so far as possible with their limited resources.
