Parents urged to always provide sanitary towels to their girl children


A section of local leaders from Kasese Municipality has observed need for the parents to always provide sanitary towels to their girl children in an attempt to promote girl-child education.

The leaders including Jolly Biira, the Kasese Municipal Chairperson for the Social Services Committee and Rosette Kansiime, the female Councilor representing Rukooki Ward to Nyamwamba Division Council, made the observation yesterday at Kogere Primary School during a function in which Kithulha Care Initiative was rewarding the best candidates in the 2023 Primary Leaving Examinations with metallic cases and mattresses.

Jolly Biira, explained that some parents do not pay attention to issues related to menstrual periods of the girl-children little knowing that the act affects their education, hence a need to be addressed.

She also discouraged the parents from assigning heavy duties to their young girls, arguing that such scenarios influence them to get married at an early age.

On her part, Rosette Kansiime, hailed Kithulha Care Initiative for supporting the best candidates regardless of their gender and challenged the parents to embrace the idea of attending meetings that are organized by the administrators of schools where their children study from.

Mr. Francis Mugisa Kithulha, the official sponsor of Kithulha Care Initiative suggested to the parents to be giving career guidance messages to their school going children coupled with supporting their education.

On top of rewarding the best candidates, the organization also rewarded 27 schools from Kasese Municipality each with shillings 100,000 for their commitment towards teaching the learners.
