With this World Connect grant, the Nsondole Mother Support Group will launch a business producing and selling uniforms and reusable sanitary pads. After renovating their working space, they will purchase sewing machines and start up materials. The grant will also support the group in hiring a facilitator for business management trainings. The mothers plan to use their income to support 200 girls from low-income families with reusable sanitary pads, uniforms, and other scholastic materials. Furthermore, the Mother Support Group aims to set an example for other women in the community, encouraging others to support girls education and to pursue business ventures which many consider traditionally masculine.
