Menstruation is a reality for billions of women and girls world over. Love Uganda Foundation thus strives to make this reality a comfortable one for many vulnerable girls and women in Uganda. Through our menstrual health and hygiene program, we reach out to vulnerable communities where we meet girls and women and educate them about menstrual periods as well as train them on the proper ways of maintaining personal hygiene during menstruation.
We also teach them how to make reusable sanitary towels and discourage the cultural taboos and stigma that exist against women in their periods. We do this so as to reduce the number of girls that drop out of school due to lack of sanitary materials.
