Fourth Quarter Report

Monitoring visit at Zamanyoni
Monitoring visit at Zamanyoni

During the fourth quarter monitoring visits were conducted at Mahetshe secondary school and at Zamanyoni Primary school. The participants are making good use of the skill acquired and are showing positive results.

A total of forty young girls were trained at Mahetshe secondary school, Ms Ncube now managed to cascade the training to a total of sixty more young girls in the school. The prevailing economic crisis in Zimbabwe makes it difficult for families to be able to buy necessities. The training has made it easy for young girls in the school to access clean and safe to use sanitary wear.  All the girls have managed to complete five pads each and have all used them, they also stated that the reusable sanitary pads are cost effective for their families.

At Zamanyoni primary school seventeen of the women trained who are caregivers of young girls managed to complete making five reusable sanitary pads each. The women have stated that they would like to continue making the pads to resell but they do not have the funds to purchase the materials. One of the interviewed participants stated that the initiative could not have come a better time as it has eased the burden of buying reusable pads whose cost is ever rising.

The project continues to face challenges of a lack of funding and unavailability of materials in the country. The project is still making efforts to raise funds to acquire menstrual cups which are more sustainable, environmentally friendly and cost effective.
