School girls in Mwanza have no access to safe/private water & sanitation facilities or menstrual hygiene (MH) education, combined with deep-rooted cultural taboos often leading to gender inequality.

The project promotes:

  • Improved access to sanitation infrastructures in 5 public schools through rehabilitation of facilities (latrines), provision of MH kits (painkillers, pads, etc) & construction of 5 incinerators for waste management
  • Improved public acceptability of menstruation & capacities to implement good MH practices through 10 school clubs & trainings in personal hygiene & MH, as well as training teachers, school commitees & parents in MH & maintenance of infrastructures.
