They will be agent of change to other adolescent reaching to as many other adolescent with educative messages on menstrual hygiene and training others how to make the reusable and affordable sanitary packs. The project will also provide adolescent girls age 13-17 with the skills needed to live a healthy live and also reach out to adolescent with the same messages to live in a healthier community predominantly through advocacy and self help. We want to ensure that 80% of the adolescent girls age 13-17 in schools from Amuru District can afford and able to make affordable reusable sanitary packs by December 2019. The project will also contribute to reducing cases of school dropouts by adolescent girls due to challenges of menstrual periods. We expect to reduce the drop out cases by 80% by the December, 2019 through advocacy and continuous schools sensitization. Each school will have a maximum of 200 girls to be reached through sensitization, training , and provision of reusable sanitary packs. A total of 20 training will be conducted for the 5 schools, and each training will have 50 adolescent girls and 5 sensitization will be conducted. Each girls participation will cost less than $20 for the entire project period and our plan is to reach to 1000 girls directly and 3000 indirectly. Each girl will be expected to reach to other girls on average.
