All normal girls/women at 13 years under go menstruation period. At this stage it’s- so challenging to
many on how to manage the situation which lasts for at least 3-5days. The challenge is about acquisition of sanitary pads. Many young girls from poor families, their parents can’t manage to provide them and some fear to tell their parents on need because of being shy.
Lack of these
necessities usually causes many school going pupils/students lack concentration at schools and some
drop out of schools for fear on how they could manage themselves before colleagues.
A donation of $30 per month can help buy pads and give out at various schools and we save our young girls.

There is urgent need to rescue the local community with safe drinking water. Most communities in Busoga sub region have a challenge of access to clean safe water. Almost all the districts in the region water coverage stands at 60%.The population in the remaining 40% draw water from dirty wells which they share with domestic animals hence risk to diseases. The Situation worsens during dry seasons when their wells dries up leaving them starving helplessly. Example in Nakalama parish,Iganga district, the four villages with over 40,000 population share one borehole. Mr.Awali Mukuna,the Nakalama parish chairperson says that he receives at least 10 cases a day from locals Resulting from struggle& battle to draw water at the borehole. Other villages which are highly populated like Makena in Namutumba district and many more have never had a single borehole due limited budget by local governments.
A donation of$3000 can help dig a bore hole at each identified village with urgent need.
