The Global Uplift Project
Save a Girl™

The greatest preventable loss of human potential in the world.


TGUP has made and donated more than 81,000 Save a Girl™ (SaG) kits in eleven countries: Kenya, Nepal, South Africa, Tanzania, Ivory Coast, India, Cameroon, the US, Uganda, Malawi, and Zambia.

More than 20,000,000 girls in the developing world drop out of school every year because they cannot manage their period. UNICEF says it might be as many as 50,000,000.

TGUP’s Save a Girl™ (SaG) provides adolescent girls with washable, reusable cloth sanitary kits to help them manage their period so they can stay in school. A kit costs $6 to make, but is free to the girl. It lasts for three years. At $2 per girl per year, this might be the highest return on human investment in the world.
