In Uganda millions of girls are denied basic human rights simply because they are a girl. Uganda For Her is working to end gender inequality and promote girls rights by providing accurate information on their reproductive rights, family planning, consent, and techniques to take charge of their sexual health.
What’s Happening Now
Our Peer Educators train girls to understand menstruation and how to care for their reusable sanitary pads. They also educate both boys and girls on puberty, consent, and their reproductive rights in hopes of keeping the girl child in school.
We have recently started performing educational workshops on sexual health, family planning methods, STD and HIV/AIDS prevention with local groups of women and high school students. We believe this training will empower the girl child to stay in school and ensure a bright and healthy future.
In country volunteers are working hard to plan for our first ever girls Summit conference on August 17th! This conference will bring together over 80 locals girls to discuss menstruation, consent, and reproductive health through empowerment workshops and speeches.
