Quarter progress report

School-absenteeism and dropout are common problems among school girls in Ethiopia during the menstruation period. The problem seems high in rural areas but girls who live in town also faced the challenge.

As part of the intent to give all-around services for adolescent school girls in the two selected government-owned local schools, it was revealed in a joint need assessment that many girls remain to have difficulties getting appropriate sanitary pads in most circumstances. It is observed that the problem significantly affects school girls, and consultation results showed that many are not motivated to go to school during their menstrual period, and miss classes for a number of days. Knowing this fact as an initial intervention NBCDC supported 200 school girls to access sanitary pads every month to the end of the school year. The support gives relief to the girls, their families, and the school community. 600 hundred packs of sanitary pads have been distributed since September 2021.  The distribution took place initially by facilitating MHM (Menstrual Hygiene Management) orientation session for targeted school girls, through health professionals, and was able to bring an open and interactive discussion before the distribution.
