DAY OF THE GIRL: Investing in access to sanitary pad for school girls
By Itswell Victor | Project Officer
On Wednesday, the International Day of the Girl, Girls Education Mission International have marked the occasion, distributing 100 sanitary pads to school in Nigeria.
We are so proud of the work we have accomplished together so far. However, we still have a long way to go to reach a world where adolescent girls have access to sanitary products at no cost or affordable price- an opportunity they so deeply deserve.
In Nigeria, girls are grappling with compounding challenges which is obviouly occur on a daily basis through kidnapping and attacks of school girls in the Nothern region of the country. Each of these tremendous challenges undermines progress in girls’ education. More than 7 million girls in Nigeria are still not in school today, and we know that number is expected to rise as factors like rising inflation, food insecurity, and the ongoing threat to their education increses on a dily basis.
Despite these obstacles, we believe we can come together to work toward a future where every girl receives attention she deserve. It is this regard that we plan to set up sanitary pad prodcution unit which is a bussiness mode for Girls Education Mission International to generate income for the work of the organisation to support girls education and to provide them with FREE SANITRY.
All Girls should complete their Education with Dignity
By Keturah Shammah | Project Leader
"All Girls should complete their Education with Dignity"
This powerful statement, which also serve as one of milestones of giving girls dignity and livelihood, a core project of Girls Education Mission International - drove our decision to raise $20,000 on setting up a Sanitary Pad Production Factory as part of our SUSTAINABLE MODEL FOR KEEPING GIRLS IN SCHOOL - an effort to ensure girls are enrolled, retained and completed their Education with Dignity.
Unfortunately, we are still behind reaching our goal as at the moment of writting this report, only $2,604 is raised out of the $20,00 goal, leaving us with $17,396 to go. Thou, this may look impossible, we are confident that with your support, we can make this project Possible.
Funds received for this project will creat lasting impact in the lives of the most vulnerable girls in Nigeria and expand our work of providing girls acces to Menstrual Hygiene Education and awareness and FREE Sanitary Pad while generating revenue for the expansion of our work for girls in Nigeria and Beyong.
During one of our menstrual hygiene awareness Sarah said "Before now, I cannot accurately calculate my menstrual circle to know my menstrual, ovulation days and my free days but after this event, I can do that accurately and this will help me get prepare for my menstrual days psychologically and materially".
