Knickers for New Life’s works to raise awareness in the US of the barriers Ugandan girls face to health, education, and economic opportunity, and to work towards the removal of those barriers. Our mission is to raise both awareness and funds to provide our Circle of Health & Hygiene to our partner schools in rural Uganda, who are greatly under-resourced and give dignity to the vulnerable and under-valued girl-child.
KFNL partners with one school at a time in Uganda, providing these items. These basic things are the difference between a girl staying in school or dropping out at puberty, with no options to fully achieve her potential. Every year that a girl stays in school will increase her socio-economic prospects for the rest of her life.
