One of the most heartwarming HPI success story is that of Amina, a bright and determined young girl from Payibona village Gulu District. In the past, Amina struggled to attend school during her period, often resorting to using old rags or leaves. However, after the HPI program entered her school, she received monthly supplies of sanitary pads and invaluable knowledge about menstrual hygiene and health, Amina’s life took a remarkable turn! She was able to continue her education consistently and with dignity. Excelling in her studies, Amina enrolled in nursing school at Gulu University Medical School – even before completing her program, she became a role model for other girls in her community.
Amina reached the end of her school journey and achieved the seemingly impossible – she became the first nurse from her village (Payibona). Her accomplishment is not just a personal victory but a triumph for the entire community and a testament to the far-reaching impact of simple yet profound interventions. Amina’s success story exemplifies the potential for transformation when girls have the tools to reach their full potential. Access to sanitary pads played a crucial role in her journey, breaking barriers and empowering her to overcome challenges that once seemed insurmountable.
