Their generous donations of over $1,000 will support 75 young women of the Pads4Girls Uganda 2012 campaign. This fundraising effort is intended to benefit 300 young women of Kasana Town, Uganda! The non-profit Shanti Uganda, in partnership with Lunapads and AFRIpads, has organized a direct outreach program for the health and economic empowerment of women and girls in this war-torn and impoverished region in central Uganda. The Pads4Girls Uganda 2012 campaign will address preventive care and other wellness issues confronting at-risk girls and young women living with HIV and AIDS.
Help us meet our fundraising goal of $4,500 to provide 300 teenage mothers and school-aged girls with health and wellness workshops. For just $15, you can provide a girl in need with life-changing personal hygiene products and lasting education and empowerment!
