VICTORIA RALLY

23.03.2023 - 30.04.2023

Victoria Rally, or 39 days, during which we fought menstrual poverty in

East Africa: Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania by creating and equipping sewing places

where 3-day training on sewing reusable sanitary pads and sex education classes were held.

 

We managed to train 860 women, distribute 100 sets of sanitary pads , set up and equip 10 mini

sewing places, distribute more than 1,500 needles and 150 pairs if underwear .

 

Our classes include both hand and machine sewing. Hand sewing is especially important because literally anyone can do it, even if they have no experience. In East Africa, we have many bushes which thorns also work well as needles– all you need to do is sharpen them a bit and burn a hole. Instead of thread, you can use sisal fibers.

The key element of the rally to empower girls with a skill but as well with knowledge.
