Making a World of Difference

Support for ongoing projects has continued unabated in 2020 and now into 2021, further establishing the influence that Trade Aid UK has been able to give to important relief programmes worldwide. Much of this has been enabled by the continued sale of Trade Aid UK Granulated and Caster Sugar through Tesco Stores and online at Ocado. The use of external aid agencies and charities has been instrumental in us being able to reach the remotest parts of the globe where often the needs are greatest. The individual aid projects supported by the Trade Aid UK Foundation can be viewed by simply scrolling up and down the project panel on this page and clicking on the project that interests you.

Health Education for Girls

To improve access and retention of girls in 50 school communities in South Sudan, Trade Aid UK is supporting the Africa Educational Trust (AET) to provide training to 50 School Mothers on sanitation and hygiene issues and provide local materials. The implementation has been managed by the AET Resource and Open Learning Centres based in Lakes and Jonglei State in South Sudan.

School Mothers received training in two locations in Jonglei State (Bor and Panyagor) and one location in Lakes State (Rumbek Town) in August 2013. They learned how to make sanitary towels and how to transfer these skills to the girls in their school. Materials for making sanitary towels were distributed to all School Mothers, as well as soap, basins and jerry cans.

By November 2013 Outreach Officers reported that all School Mothers had started training girls in how to make sanitary towels and reported active use of provided items for improved hygiene practice. Covering 50 schools, Outreach Officers reported that over 2500 girls had benefited from making sanitary towels and were using the sanitary towels.

In the 50 years since its establishment, the Africa Educational Trust has helped over 750,000 disadvantaged children and young people from Africa to access education and training. Much of their current work takes place in South Sudan, Somalia and Uganda.
