What We Do

Sanitary Supply Campaign (a program run by SSAN)

Can you imagine, being a teen, experiencing the changes of puberty, already grappling with trying to understand and adapt to your growing self, yet on top of that, not having the basic necessities to provide necessary ease throughout this transition of maturation? Well, this is the case for every girl at the age of puberty living in the internally displaced City of Shalom.

These are the IDP Girls, currently residing in displacement camps after tribal wars in East Africa, and have made this place their home since 2008. This living situation is one of abject poverty; and sadly, these girls do not have the much needed feminine care products that every woman so desperately needs each month to feel clean and confidently secure enough to carry out daily activity.

These young girls, go without…and miss out; just by virtue of their womanhood. Many are forced to remain home from school because of the lack of accessibility to feminine care products; resulting in drop-outs and pregnancy for many.

NO young woman going through puberty should be kept from her education for lack of the basic necessities every woman around the globe should have readily accessible to her in endless quantities and of superior quality.

The #FearlessGirl Sanitary Supply Campaign ensures that every girl will receive adequate sanitary towels, soap and underwear to sustain her over and above her needs, freeing her to focus on her education; in addition to educating her on hygiene, health & menstruation fully equipping her to walk boldly in her femininity

The Rejesha Initiative

Rejesha, means to “restore” in Swahili. Internal Displacement & abject poverty are traumatic and crippling. People living in war-torn regions, or living in displacement after war, need healing and hope in unimaginable ways.

Rejesha is a program of She Saves A Nation that rebuilds internal brokenness in order to achieve hope & optimism in the lives of our girls who have seen & experienced so much.

Through the internationally used curriculum “Healing the Wounds of Trauma” girls have the opportunity to address their hurt head on, allowing them to see that they are not alone and that all that they have experienced can build strength to fuel their purpose in life.

SSAN Leaders Academy & Scholarship Fund

There is no limit to what a girl can do when she is educated. The She Saves A Nation Leaders Academy program is one that equips & builds the leader in each girl, by advocating for and supporting educational excellence, through training, mentorship, esteem building workshops, & health & hygiene education.

She Saves a Nation will award the DADA YANGU (“She is my sister”) scholarship fund that an exemplary girl leader will receive each year to support her continued education to university.
