Lack of awareness over menstruation

In 2023 we have been providing over 12.000 kits of washable protection for menstruation following the model of the association Days for Girls.

However, a major problem in Burkina is the lack of awareness of the girls over menstruation. Most of the time they are surprised by what is happening to them and do not have somebody to talk about it.

This creates fear and often shame to many girls. Menstruation is still a taboo for many families. Mother do not talk about it with their daughter. Even in primary school no teachers dare to give information to the pupils.

I was told that the lectures in 3rd year secondary school which has the most attention from the students is in biology class when the subject is reproduction. This is too late for many girls.

We have been busy informing girls in primary schools and some private secondary schools have been calling on us to make our presentation. This presentation has been developed by Days for Girls.

Our objective for 2024 is to provide more than 12.000 kits and inform around 1.000 girls about menstruation.
