I almost dropped out of school because of Menstruation - Girls Speak Up
I have been missing school every five days a month due to lack of sanitary pads. I never wanted the boys at school to make fun of me and call me funny names in case I stain my uniform. This affected my performance and i felt like abandoning school. I want to thank Raising Teenagers Uganda for support me with sanitary pads and knickers. Now am able to attend school daily without worrying about staining my dress. Anitah K.Facebook Share Tweet

An Educated Girl Can Make Choices
When i meet young girls in the villages carrying babies and they they tell me they are the mothers to those babies, my heart bleeds. I imagine how a child can be a mother!! It even get more painful when they say that their parents forced them to get married. What kind of parent does that to a little girl?
Then that makes me realize that they are forced because they cant make their own choices. May be if they had stayed in school, they would be able to decide when to get married, with whom to get married and that way their lives would be better.
That is why i call upon fellow girls to stay in school and until they complete. There is a lot to benefit when one completes school. Me too, i will stay in school until i finished university.Facebook Share Tweet
