Sanitary Freedom Keeps African Schoolgirls in Class

UNICEF estimates that one in 10 female African youngsters still do not attend school during menstruation

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) estimates that one in 10 female African youngsters still do not attend school during menstruation.
 
The menstrual problem is widespread and in some countries like Uganda, the figure is estimated to be more than 60 percent.
 
Uganda's government, meanwhile, has ordered schools to provide girls with what it calls ‘emergency’ sanitary towels as well as spare uniforms, underwear and pain killers. But with no extra money to pay for the items, schools administrators say it is a cost they cannot afford.
