The cost of sanitary towels and tampons in The Gambia, together with the lack of school facilities for hygienic disposal of used items, means that many girls will miss school during ‘that time of the month’. It is estimated that girls in The Gambia without access to sanitary products will miss 48 days of schooling every year. The Steve Sinnott Foundation is fundraising to help level the playing field by teaching girls and teachers how to make safe, re-usable pads using locally sourced materials.

Over the weekend, the School Cuts campaign launched a petition to support calls for local authorities and schools to have sufficient funds and resources to guarantee all pupils with SEND have access to education.
So far we have received 8,576 signatures and counting.
This petition was launched off the back of 39 local councils – supported by the NEU and School Cuts coalition partners – wrote to Damian Hinds to demand more money to support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The publication of the letter received a great deal of attention from local and national media and also parents and other groups campaigning on this important issue.
Please do all you can to share this and encourage as many people as possible to sign it.
