YoSpace is back again after a two month break. The project started officially last week with a Peer Educators’ training of young people from the implementation districts of Bushenyi and Kabarole.

The Luganda word ‘Ensonga’, translates into English as ‘The Issue’. This name reflects a great concern that for many Ugandan girls, menstruation still poses a genuine issue or problem. Menstruation is associated with stigma, taboos, a lack of appropriate facilities including products, water and sanitation facilities that all hinder girls from maximising their education. 

Parents have held themselves responsible for the increased cases of teenage pregnancies in Luwero district. Claiming they have not done enough parenting and left their girls to lead very permissive and reckless lives.
