London Marathon 2016


ACE has been successful in the ballot for places in the 2016 London Marathon.

Our runner will be George Pye, one of the sons of Ian and Janet Pye. Janet is an ACE trustee and runs our Sponsorship Scheme.

A New Venture for ACE

ACE has always been concerned about the welfare of the girls in the schools we support. This is important as the pupils stay in primary education longer than in Britain, so some are teenagers.



Some of the schools have a dedicated room for girls to consult privately with a woman teacher.

We have recently sponsored a course for women teachers which was largely paid for by two ACE supporters.

It was organised by William Balibutsa, the local school inspector.

William reported -

I am happy to inform you that I finished the training of making reusable sanitary pads. I trained all the female teachers and in the training the following topics were relevant-

1. Meaning of menstruation, menstruation cycle, infections and beliefs, norms and myths on menstruation.  
2. Girls' first experiences of menstruation and health related problems and their management.  
3. Importance of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM).  
4. Making of reusable sanitary pads.  
The power point presentation and stages of making the reusable sanitary pads are attached. Also attached are photos of participants listening and practising how to make the pads.
