This project works to increase equal opportunities for school-age girls and young women, including those with disabilities, to attend school in Gogrial West, South Sudan. Project activities include: (1) providing menstrual hygiene management support; (2) constructing safe water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in schools; and (3) conducting training and education sessions with parents, school personnel, students, and school management committees on hygiene, menstrual hygiene management, and sexual and gender based violence (SGBV). The project aims to support approximately 9,000 school-aged girls and young women in selected primary and secondary schools. Boys are included in specific aspects of the project – such as education, school clubs, hygiene product distribution – to encourage their full participation and reduce instances of SGBV in schools. This project works to directly contribute to Canada’s G7 Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education for Girls, Adolescent Girls and Women in Developing Countries.
