LEA School of the Deaf Kuje

The Project

In commemoration of the International day of the girl, Hope Spring water in partnership with SuS pads visited School of the Deaf Kuje to lecture them on Menstrual Hygiene Management and how to make a reusable pad. The programme was attended by both boys and girls. 

We made them realise disability does not stop them from achieving their dreams and aspirations in life. They were also taught confidence and how to carry themselves. Their school teachers interpreted everything discussed during the program.

Project Impact

We made them realise pregnancy is a choice, but period is a must for adolescent girls. They were lectured on period poverty, menstrual hygiene and the dos and don'ts during menstruation. There was a practical example of the type of exercise they can do during menstruation which was fun for the girls.

During the practical aspect, we introduced to the girls the type of fabric needed to make a reusable pad and how to cut a pad. The girls cut the fabric with drafting paper and sewed using a sewing machine, while others made use of hand needles. The girls were fast learners despite the fact that we only use sign language in training them

Project Sustainability

We also cut out materials for the girls to make at home and teach their friends and siblings. The program was impactful because these girls would be able to stay in school during menstruation and have a brighter future.

The girls were glad of their new new skills and knowledge, and rest assured they donĀ“t need to worry about getting pads monthly anymore.
