Darren Muise of Montreal has helped girls in Uganda stay in school, by purchasing recyclable sanitary pads for them.
Sanitary pads are frequently too expensive for rural Africans to purchase - girls often miss school for this reason, and frequently drop out entirely.
AFRIpads are an Uganda-produced reusable sanitary pad that lasts up to one year. Darren’s donation purchased several AFRIpads kits, that were distributed to girls aged 12+ at four new humanist schools in Kyarumba, western Uganda.
The four schools are: Mother Givers Humanist School, Rays of Light Orphanage Humanist School, Vision Care Humanist School, and Mughete Junior Humanist School.
Thank you Darren Muise for this wonderful gift!
