MyPad

Many school girls miss a couple of days of school every month during their periods, because they lack menstrual hygiene products.

So UGoGreen introduced MyPads: reusable washable menstrual pads. We partnered with others and gave training to teachers on how to make these pads themselves, and they teach it to the children.

Every year UGoGreen donates material (towels, cotton, needles, sissors and thread), so the children can make their own pads.

Thanks to Ms Justine Namirimu, our dedicated teacher contact, we have the program running in 2 schools at he moment.
