Besides the fact of providing washable protection for menstruation, we beleive that it is important to help girls understand their body.
This is not done by their parents and often not done at school.
At the time of distribution of the protection menstruation kits to school girls and to women, we give a lecture on how their body is working.
In include the organe of reproduction, the cycle of menstruation, how the baby are made, hygiene of the intimate part of the body, how to use the provided kits and how to defend yourself against a man too agressive.
We do not talk in detail about contarceptions methods. However we explain that family planning is possible.
Our objective is to decrease the teen pregnancy. We are doing those awareness meeting in collaboration with the midwife of the local medical dispensary.
The presentation used has been provided by Days for Girls.
There are still many girls without protection and without knowing their body.
Please help us to give a chance to young girls to plan their future and also to women be protected.
