Partnership with Rotary International
Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) and Sanitation 

   “Girls Helping Girls Stay in School”

Rotary Hygiene and Sanitation Social Enterprise (ROHSSEL)

A problem for girls in many African countries when they reach the age of menstruation is that at the time of their period they do not attend school because they do not understand the change that is taking place in their bodies, they do not have or cannot afford sanitary napkins and they do not feel safe.In 2020, the Rotary Hygiene and Sanitation Social Enterprise(ROHSSEL) Sponsored by The Rotary Club of West Vancouver Sunrise- International Sponsor, The Rotary Club of Kampala Nsambya-Host Club, Rotary International, The Rotary Foundation Canada and Clubs in District 5040 and District 9211 in collaboration with Candle Light Foundation was founded in Uganda East Africa as an extension of the Candle Light High School with a mission to provide training in menstrual hygiene management and sanitation and the production of reusable environmentally friendly sanitary pads to help keep girls in school. The Social Enterprise is well established and a unique brand of reusable sanitary pads  "EnviroPADS" is available for girls and women.
