UPDATE: THANKS TO YOUR GENEROSITY we will send 350 pad kits to students in Kirinda, Uganda. These kits will last them one year. You have ensured that 350 girls will receive an education in 2024. Thank you.
$1,658.75 raised of $1375 goal!!!
A gift of only $5 ensures that a Ugandan girl won’t miss school because of her period for an entire year.
In 2013, a Ugandan woman named Sylvia asked for help keeping local girls in school while they were menstruating. Our founder, Jennifer, answered the call. Sylvia’s Sisters was born; we continue to support the community of Kirinda, Uganda, today.
Getting funding for international work is hard. Your contribution will help us purchase 300 Afripad kits. Each kit comes with 4 reusable pads and is made to last one menstruator for one year.
Sylvia will deliver the kits to an in-need school. She will also provide basic menstrual health education and instructions on how to care for their new reusable pads.
THANK YOU for supporting the education of girls in rural Uganda.
