VICTORIA RALLY

23.03 - 30.04

Research shows that girls face monthly challenges, with 65% of women and girls in Kenya

unable to afford sanitary pads. In rural areas, many girls use unsanitary forms of protection

such as sand, feathers and leaves causing infections and painful sores. Uganda’s Ministry of

Education reported that, as of 2019, nearly one in every four Ugandan girls between ages 12

to 18 will drop out of school once they begin menstruating.

According to the SHE28 campaign, 18 percent of girls and women in Rwanda missed out on

school and work in 2018 because they could not afford to buy menstrual pads.

According to a 2015 study by TAWASANET Menstruation Health Management, the majority

of girl students – or about 62% – miss school in Tanzania due physical illness that results

from menstruation. Lack of proper education makes some girls exchange dirty sanitary pads

and some even to engage in sexual intercourse to buy basic hygiene products. Period

poverty contributes to global and regional gender inequity.

That's why we're asking for your help today!

At the 23rd of March we are organizing the Victoria Rally. Our goal is to drive across East

Africa, to empower women with a skill of sewing and construction of reusable sanitary pads

and create a long-lasting change, by securing access to affordable and ecological menstrual

products. We will provide sex education classes tailored to the needs of the women and

girls.

To achieve this goal and make sure that all places are selfsufficient we need to purchase

sewing machines, materials and such basic things as underwear and soaps for intimate

hygiene.

We can’t do it without your help !
