Challenge

In Nigeria today,more than 52% of adolescent girls opt not to attend classes when they are on their menses merely because they have no material to remedy themselves.In a random interview conducted,we gathered from 32 girls in fufore, Adamawa state, where by lack of sanitary facilities has pushed menstruating girls out of school permanently to avoid shame in a community where menstruation was considered a taboo.Unless Something is done now,their reproductive health and education is at great risk

Solution

HABRIN will be engaged in furthering the menstrual hygiene management care through provision of free sanitary care items, mentorship and capacity building programs for young girls and women aims to address menstruation related myths prevalent in northern part of Nigeria. This we intend to achieve through collaborative partnership with communities' stakeholder, school teachers, head girls and artisans for project ownership and continuity.

Long-Term Impact

This project will empower 2000 adolescent school girls with necessary skills and menstrual hygiene management materials that they need to become healthy, get educated and grow into women who are empowered to care for themselves, their families, and their communities.
