The inspiration for our project !

        This is Sylvia Namukasa (center), Director and founder of Kyempapu Uganda.  Sylvia brought to our attention the problem of keeping girls in school because feminine hygiene products are not readily available or affordable.  Sylvia distributes our hygiene kits in the schools once they reach Uganda.

In the early days of the project, a few women in Richmond, VA realized that we are all sisters in this world and the name Sylvia's Sisters stuck!   The group has grown.   Included here are our friends and key advisers, Fr. Gerald Musuubire and Father John Mary Lugemwa, OSB, both from Uganda.
