School-going girls to be skilled in making re-usable sanitary towels

Kabubbu Development Project is a reproductive health NGO in Wakiso district of Uganda that is teaching middle and high school girls to make reusable sanitary pads. Lack of pads can mean the difference between going to school or not. The school found that when some young women had no money they turned to prostitution to afford hygiene products and go to school.
