At Fields of Dreams Uganda, it is our mission to provide hope, empowerment, and a future to the children of Uganda. We strive to find creative ways to keep these children in school. One of the most effective ways we’ve found to accomplish this is with our hygiene kit program. Each year, every one of the mature girls at our partner schools receives a hygiene kit that helps her manage her monthly cycles. Though simple in concept, the impact is profound.

“Without hygiene kits, I would not be able to stay in school. I would be married by now and I would have two children.” - Irene, 17

In 2020, Fields of Dreams Uganda will distribute more than 2100 hygiene kits -- to every single one of the mature girls at our eight partner schools, to their opponents on the soccer field (during local soccer matches), and to soccer players from across Uganda at our national Hope Cup soccer tournament. Though the kit is small, the impact is great.

What's in the kit?

Our washable, reusable pads come from AFRIpads, a Ugandan social enterprise that creates cloth pads which are eco-friendly, cost-effective, and sustainable. All other items in our hygiene kits, including the cinch bags they come in, are sourced in Uganda, supporting the local economy. At just $19 each, these hygiene kits ensure that the girls who receive them can feel confident enough in their hygiene to remain in classes and train on the soccer field.
