    The 'Keep Girls in School’ campaign is a sponsorship programme which supports vulnerable girls and orphans through school by providing them with their school fees and essential school equipment.
    The ‘Restoring Dignity’ Campaign is a sanitary towel making programme that aims to stop ridicule and give young girls their dignity back, to reduce infections amongst women and girls and to increase girl’s attendance in school, keeping them in the classrooms where they belong.
