New Life Primary School is located in Hoima, Uganda. Our partnership with the school began in October 2016 when there were 178 students from Kindergarten through 6th grade – many of whom are poor/orphaned, and under-resourced. For 2017, enrollment has jumped to 226 with many of the new students being girls who had dropped out due to lack of resources to handle their menstrual cycle. New Life Primary has gained a strong reputation in their community “for caring for the girl-child.” Yes, they do!
Provide knickers for every student (many have none at all).
Provide Makapads each month for all girls that have reached puberty.
Provide basic health and sanitation information to students.
Build new latrines for girls and boys with proper hand-wash stations and soap.
Project Start: October 2016
