TKL’s qualifying innovation is to help more girls take part in sports programmes and go to school by developing, manufacturing and marketing low-cost sanitary protection using local materials. They have partnered and linked together our friends at Moving the Goalposts (MTG) in to develop this programme in conjunction with the developer of the “Makapads” system, Professor Musaazi of Makerere University . This makes TKL a truly East African partnership in development, an innovation in itself!
