For many girls from impoverished backgrounds, the onset of puberty marks a sharp decline in school attendance and also leads to drop outs in school completely due to embarrassment. One of the causes of this is the lack of sanitary protection and lack of knowledge around puberty. Because they are unable to afford sanitary protection and because they don’t understand what is happening to their bodies, what could be a celebration of womanhood become a night mare, shame and embarrassment and stigmatization.

New Hope is implementing “The always keeping girls in school and give them hope in deep villages of western Uganda. The objective of this campaign is to empower female learners and keep them in school through providing puberty education and always sanitary protection, access to educational resources and motivation to stay in school

While the campaign is to motivate the girls to stay in school, it has a far greater objective. By motivating these girls, to have a dream and plan for their future, their self-esteem is raised and they are in a better position to further their education

Since May 2015, we have touched lives of over 1800 girls around western Uganda

For a complex set of reasons, most of what is known about adolescent girls focuses on the problems they face. The fact that many adolescent girls are showing remarkable strength, resiliency, and "hardiness" during the stressful time of adolescence needs to be explored. Instead of focusing on the storm and stress of adolescence, a new understanding of adolescent girls that affirms their strength and resilience needs to be developed. Although the current day risks and stresses in the lives of adolescent girls must be understood, they should not be the defining factors in discussions of adolescent girls. There must be a focus on what is working for adolescent girls, and why to assist adolescent girls in navigating these risks during their development.The New Hope on Adolescent Girls: Strengths and Stresses is to integrate current knowledge regarding adolescent girls in order to focus on the strengths, challenges, and choices of adolescent girls today. New Hope will also identify gaps and inconsistencies in research, education, practice, and public policy. In this endeavor, the New Hope is committed to the inclusion of the voices and lives of a range of adolescent girls in terms of age, racial and ethnic diversity, socioeconomic status, geographic area, and sexual orientation. The New Hope will work to raise public and professional consciousness in regard to adolescent girls with a particular focus on those who impact their lives including parents, educators, health care professionals, and policymakers. Through its activities, the New Hope will chart directions into the new frontiers of the next century through a critical examination of the policy issues, current knowledge, and research approaches to understanding adolescent girls
