Summary

According to UNESCO, 1 out of 10 girls in Africa miss school during their menstrual period and eventually drop out. In Nigeria, sanitary pads costs an average of $1.30 per pack, while most families live below the poverty threshold of $1.20 per day. The high cost of sanitary pads in Nigeria have made them inaccessible for poor girls. In some situations, girls face sexual abuse in their quest for money to buy sanitary pads. SOHF aims to curb this ugly trend and reinforce the confidence in them.

Challenge

In MAKOKO Community, one in every four girl-child has been molested and suffered sexual abuse. In MAKOKO, a small town in rural Community in Lagos, one out of every 3 teenagers admits that they live or have lived through sexual abuse of some kind at least once in their lives. It is clear that the right to a life free of violence for GIRL-CHILD, children and teenagers is seldomly enjoyed.

Solution

We will implement prevention workshops for 500 girl-child, children and teenagers; create a network of trained local people who will be spokespersons for the issue and will be able to detect and channel cases of abuse; generate and publish communication material at a local level and share tools and lessons learned with other organizations and in other communities to make an even greater impact.

Long-Term Impact

With this project, Sam Onyemaechi Humanitarian Foundation is seeking to generate tools and learnings that can be replicated in other communities in the country, in order to protect thousands of girl-child and teenagers in MAKOKO.
