Visit by Plan Netherlands
In the week of September 15, we enjoyed a great visit by our partner Plan Netherlands. Together with Plan Australia, Plan Netherlands is funding a Menstrual Hygiene Management project that is implemented by Plan Uganda and AFRIpads.
The goal of the project is to enable 100,000 rural women and adolescent girls to manage their menstruation effectively and hygienically in Tororo, Lira and Kamuli districts. We showed Plan our production facilities in and around Masaka, and visited our project in Tororo. We met with several AFRIpads dealers, who are sensitizing the communities around them about AFRIpads and MHM in general. We also spoke with school girls, who shared their experiences with us on how menstruation was affecting their life. A reporter of the Dutch magazine Viva joined Plan Netherlands during their visit, and the result is this really nice video. Some bits are in Dutch, but the majority is in English. It gives a nice impression of our work and our great partnership with Plan!!
