Involve mom in the work for children’s rights

This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day in Sweden. Usually we celebrate our mothers by having a nice meal with family and friends, and maybe with some flowers and gifts. However, currently it is hard to have a normal celebration due to the ongoing pandemic. There are other ways to show love and appreciation, and therefore it is still possible to uplift and celebrate all amazing mothers on Sunday.

Unite 2 Learn offers various digital gift certificates to give away on Sunday. A gift certificate shows that you and your mother have contributed with funds to support the work to improve children’s rights in Tanzania. If you support a project here on the website until Sunday, you will receive a digital gift certificate through email. You can print the gift certificate or just forward it to your mother on Sunday. Post payment on the website, please make sure to email  in order to receive your gift certificate.

Yesterday, we celebrated the International Menstruation Day and therefore we would like to specially mention our project called “Feminine hygiene products – ensuring girls’ school attendance”. Sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR), is one of our major focus areas, and is vital in order to ensure children’s development. Through the project, we educate girls and boys about menstruation in order to increase knowledge and to decrease the stigma surrounding the subject in northern Tanzania. The lack of knowledge about menstruation is not only an issue for girls and women in Tanzania, but rather a societal problem. You can read more about it here.

For only 12o SEK, we can make sure children get educated about menstruation and that the girls receive reusable sanitary pads, which improves girls’ school attendance and health. A gift certificate is not only for your mother or another amazing woman close to you, but rather an important gift to all the girls in Tanzania – a gift that really matters! Involve your mother in the work for children’s rights by donating today.
