START A PROJECT

Let us know how you would like to help with E.P.I.C.  Some ideas are listed below, but feel free to come up with something of your own too! 

DONATE

You can donate right here on our website by clicking on this link: DONATE NOW

FUNDRAISE

Get your family and friends interested in the cause and ask them to make donations on our website (www.epicthemovement.org)

Start your own chapter of E.P.I.C. and throw a small fundraiser of your own. A few ideas for that could be:

  • A movie/game night (invite people over to watch a movie/play board games, but ask them to bring a contribution).
  • A night out (invite people to a local bar/lounge, and ask them if you can raise money for the cause at the door - $20 suggested donation).
  • Set up a fundraising table at your school/college (we can provide you with T-shirts and dog tags to sell if you would like).

VOLUNTEER

  • Help us out with fundraisers, emails, mail-outs, awareness campaigns, E.P.I.C. chapters at your schools, etc.
  • Offer whatever skills you have that may be useful to us, such as web design, video editing, social networking, community building, etc.

YOLE forum UG is a Community Based Organization registered under the Ministry of Gender, and Social Development that realizes the significance of a positive influence on the girl child in the development of the society. It was established in 2012 with 6 members as one of the Community based Organization in Kabarole district. We are looking forward to reaching 1000 fully registered Members by end of 2020 with a vision for active, erudite and responsible professionals to become the future leaders of their community with members designing and organizing programs that help empower the girl child and the youth at large. This sanitary towels project targets school-going girls from disadvantaged social and economic backgrounds in their puberty.

YOLE forum UG is raising funds to provide free sanitary pads to female students in Kabarole district. The Initiative will distribute the pads to girls in more than 100 schools, both primary and secondary schools. At the primary level, these will encompass girls from Class 5 to Class 7. The Initiative will organize trainings and question-and-answer sessions to give girls a forum to discuss related issues along with female teachers and other staff in the schools. This project will be on-going and is envisioned to address not only girls in Kabarole district but also those in other rural and arid areas starting with the western region.

GAP avowal:

Female students face great challenges in terms of hygiene and sanitation. For girls who are menstruating, these problems compound the difficulties posed by the inability to afford sanitary towels as well as cultural taboos around menstruation. As a result, many girls miss on average four days of school every month which is over a month in a year, meaning they fall behind in class and sometimes even drop out of school altogether. In addition this force them to go for men to get menstrual material which in a long run turn into sex exchange.
