Come spend a day with Marjorie and The Gejja Women Foundation! With over 137 members - and located about 30 minutes outside of Kampala - you'll get to meet lots of local people and learn their stories. The cooperative is focused on empowering women economically and socially to be able to stand up for their rights. The flagship project of the foundation is the production of re-usable sanitary pads, by women, for women and for safe menstruation. Over 1000 pads have been produced. All profits raised allow currently three out of school girls to attend school again and build a future for themselves.
