Growing Awareness on Menstrual Hygiene - Gorongosa

On Friday 28 May, Helpcode team in Gorongosa joined the District Services for Education, Youth and Technology, the District Services for Health and the director of Gorongosa Rural Hospital to celebrate, together with a group of 30 girls aged 12-17 from different primary and secondary schools, International Menstrual Hygiene Day.

This small event has been an opportunity to reflect collectively on the importance of improving information for adolescents on sexual and reproductive health, and of creating conditions in which girls can have regular access to sanitary towels – in a context where they are often forced to use cloth or even to skip school during menstruation, as we discussed in our previous reports. These issues are rarely discussed in the family, which is also why they have aroused great interest among the girls, who have proposed organising regular information meetings in schools.

Helpcode is currently busy planning such training sessions in the context of a project coordinated by UNICEF with funds from the European Union, where teachers and school councils (that includes representatives of the students) will be involved in order to develop awareness activities on menstrual hygiene and how this is linked to girls empowerment as well as to gender equality.

Stay tuned!
