Donate to the Halifax Chefs for UNICEF Gala
Your contribution will help UNICEF reach 150,000 girls and 170,000 boys through the UNdaunted program in the West Nile region of Uganda, empowering girls and enhancing their education.
Girls face a number of challenges at school as they transition into adolescence.
Your support will equip 40 schools with boreholes and water systems, gender-segregated and disability-friendly latrines and solar lights to ensure a safe space for adolescent girls.
In 400 schools, students and staff will be trained in menstrual hygiene management and student clubs will be established to foster gender-responsive approaches to health.
