Darren Muise buys AFRIpads for Humanist Schoolgirls in Uganda

Posted: Tue, April 19, 2016 | By: Mother Givers Humanist School



​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!
