Official opening - changing rooms are complete!
We're delighted that the changing rooms, which are part of our latest project for Her Education Matters, are now completed.
Umodzi Youth Organisation (UYO) held an opening ceremony at Ntenjera (Likulu) Primary School to officially hand them over and mark the milestone occasion.
UYO Programs Director, Shy Ali, said that the lack of facilities to accommodate girls during their period is one of the factors that prevents them from completing their education.
The school’s Headmistress, Senzeni Dzaipazatha, said she is “expecting a rise in the passing rate from now onwards as our girls will no longer miss classes during their menstrual periods, now that they have enough sanitary reusable pads and change rooms."
