Did you know many Ugandan girls miss up to 20% of school because they don't have the necessary sanitary supplies for their monthly cycles?

Fields of Dreams Uganda strives to ensure that no girl falls behind in the classroom or on the field by equipping each of the mature girls in our ten partner schools with a hygiene kit.

Hygiene kits are one element of our Girl Empowerment initiative — winner of the International Sport for Health Award from Beyond Sport.

In 2019, we plan to distribute more than 2,000 hygiene kits at our ten partner schools, through friendly matches in the communities we operate, and through our HOPE Cup Soccer Tournament that is open to teams throughout Uganda.

What's in the kit?

The washable pads are from AFRIpads, a local Ugandan social enterprise that creates cloth pads which are eco-friendly, cost-effective and sustainable (for up to one year). All other items in our hygiene kits are sourced locally in Uganda as well.

At just $19, the purchase of a hygiene kit ensures that each girl can attend classes and train on the soccer field by equipping them with the following:

  • 5 washable, durable pads
  • 1 pad storage bag
  • 2 large bars of soap
  • 1 wash basin
  • 1 drying rack
  • 3 pair of underwear
  • 1 storage bag
  • 1 comb/mirror
  • 1 toothbrush and tube of toothpaste
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 pair of fingernail clippers
  • 1 Girl Talk book educating the girls on their changing bodies
  • ... and most importantly, a new sense of dignity and self-respect!
