Challenge

60% absenteeism of girls in rural schools is due to failure for proper management of menstruation in girls aged 12-17. Most girls start menstruation at the age of 12 and during this period many prefer staying at home, missing 1 to 4 days every month translating into 12% time missed per year. This has affected the performance and dropout rate at school due to early marriage. 80% of the girls have no access to menstrual pads and facilities. Girls will be provided with pads and knowledge.

Solution

With provision of reusable pads and knowledge on the proper management of menstruation there will be reduction in absenteeism at school hence improved performance, retention and completion of school among the girl child. Provision of bathroom, water storage containers and basin facilities will help the girl child access changing and clean up facilities.Training in use of locally available material provide more sustainable solutions for pads and also training senior women teacher to support.

Long-Term Impact

400 girl children supported with reusable pads and equipped skills to use locally available materials. Improved enrollment performance, retention and completion of girls in school. Reduction in early marriages and poverty among the communities. Improvement in school support to the girl child from the senior women teachers.
