The One Girl, One Pad Project

This program has three overarching goals:
Encourage period-related conversation in the community(parents, teachers, and men to end period stigma.
Support the girls and women who are unable to afford period-related necessities

Youth Leadership Development Programs.
JLU invests in leadership development programs for young boys and girls every year. Young people are taught the importance of staying in school to become leaders of tomorrow.
Abuse education and awareness programs
Teaching young children how to recognize, prevent, and exit abusive relationships are paramount to their safety and well-being.
Back to School Donations
Every day, girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence, and fragility.
Mindful that Investing in girls’ education transforms communities, JLU Global foundation prioritizes the education of the girl child. Girls who receive an education are less likely to marry young and more likely to lead healthy, productive lives. They earn higher incomes, participate in the decisions that most affect them, and build better futures for themselves and their families.
Financial Empowerment to Abuse Survivors
JLU supports survivors of abuse financially to recover and sustain their lives without fear of returning to their abusers. Several women are encouraged to start up small businesses such as hair salons, roadside food stands, and other sustainable businesses.
Community awareness programs
JLU champions community awareness programs, and advocacy and remains aligned with the UN"s Sustainable Development Goals.
