Maisha Holistic Foundation Director Milly Nassolo Kikomeko was recently invited to attend a counseling and guidance event for girls at Majet Secondary School located in Kybando Nansana, Wakiso District. she blessed the girls with re-usable sanitary pads and nickers that were donated by KHANA and FUSION leadership group. Milly also taught the girls about menstrual hygiene and general Health matters and how to keep themselves in school and avoid early pregnancies.
They were also taught on how to avoid early marriages and where to report if forced into early marriages.
As girls they suffer problems related to lack of career guidance and people to confide in when faced with challenges related to menstruation and sexual harassment. the workshop focused on building the girl’s confidence to be able to share their problems with their mothers, teachers (female) and to also understand how it is important for them to stay in school.
