Closure of the Project - on to the next steps!

By Roberta Pellizzoli | Project Leader

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support of our Menstrual Hygiene Project over the years. Your generosity has contributed to ensure that 1,500 teen girls in Gorongosa District, Mozambique, could receive long-lasting washable menstrual kits as well as be trained on sexual and reproductive health.

Even though we weren’t able to achieve the full goal that we had set for this GlobalGiving campaign, we had the opportunity to partner with other donors to ensure that we could reach the target that we had in mind when we first launched this campaign.

As you can imagine, addressing girls’ sexual and reproductive health needs, in Gorongosa and around the world, remains a key challenge – as access to menstrual hygiene products is not only related to their physical wellbeing but, as we discussed in our previous reports, is also directly linked to regular school attendance. And the beneficial effect doesn’t end here: properly managing menstruation and being informed about sexual and reproductive health means less likelihood to drop out of school when girls reach puberty, and therefore more opportunities to build a sustainable future and avoid an early marriage.
What was critical for bringing this discussion forward in the communities where we work was the involvement of all the stakeholders to ensure the legitimacy of the project: from teachers to parents, from community leaders to boys, we wanted to have everyone on board to make sure that talking about menstrual hygiene needs would be deemed appropriate and relevant for the whole community.
As we close this chapter of our journey, we invite you to continue supporting Helpcode's broader mission. Your continued support can help us channel our resources toward projects where we can make a meaningful and sustainable difference in the lives of those in need. Your generosity has the power to transform lives, and we believe that together, we can continue to create a better future for communities around the world.

Once again, we extend our deepest gratitude to you for standing by us in our efforts to improve the lives of girls and women. We hope you will continue to be a part of our journey as we move forward with renewed dedication to our mission.

Thank you for making a difference, and for being an integral part of the Helpcode family.
