Bags4Girls are comprehensive menstrual hygiene kits/backpackers with educational programming designed with and for girls in Uganda. We designed this bag for Girls ages 12 to 17 years in rural Uganda that miss up to 8 days of study each school term because they are on their periods, NGOs have provided them with reusable sanitary towels but some still don’t use them because they have no sense of confidence of carrying them to and fro school.
