Introducing our project managers: Sarah Nakayiza from Wellbeing Foundation
My name is Sarah Nakayiza, I’m Ugandan and I’m one of the project manager of MPIA Uganda/The Wellbeing Foundation. I am a public health worker by profession and currently finishing my Bachelors Degree in Public Health.
I am a proud member of the menstrual warriors movement and believe that menstrual equity is one of the basis of women and girls equal enjoyment of their human rights. Fighting the stigmas and taboos surrounding menstruation is one of the many things that need to be done to achieve the goal. The stigmas and taboos have not just stolen freedom and rights of many women and girls but have crippled their lives for generations.
I believe we are fighting the good fight, for everyone of us needs to fully enjoy their lives and rights.
