President of United States Of America

The government of Uganda provides "free" primary education for all. However, statistics show that fewer than 38% of girls entering Primary 1 (the equivalent of kindergarten) in 2009 will complete their primary education. Many obstacles stand in the way of successful education for rural African girls but chief among them are issues relating to puberty, teen pregnancy, and early marriage. This project will increase the chances of academic success for Ugandan girls
Educating girls is widely regarded as one of the best ways to improve the economy and health of developing countries . However, girls consistently fare less well academically than boys.

The rate at which girl children drop out school will reduce because many of them become absent due to purberty related problems like menstruation periods.

No school that provides sanitary pads in Uganda yet may families are poor even to afford a meal of food at home.
so many youg girls use any available piece of cloth as a towel yet some are dirty and not fit to be used as sanitary pads

Many young girls are shy to talk about this problem , because they fill out of place, lonely ,neglected, offended , cursed during they menstruation period.
I appeal to women groups, mothers, men and women who understand this problem to support me and sign this petition appealing to president of USA,to take an action
