More about Girls Empowerment Project
Fields of Dreams Uganda provides hope for the orphaned and vulnerable children of Uganda through the vehicles of football (soccer) and education. Our Girls Empowerment Project uses sports and educational programming to target the obstacles faced by the orphaned girls at our partner schools after they have started their menstrual cycles. These obstacles include not being able to afford hygiene supplies, health issues related to the use of unsanitary supplies, missing up to 20% of classes each month and social pressure to quit school and get married. The Girls Empowerment Project provides hygiene kits and inspires the girls to stay in school as they strive to reach for their goals.
