women of Sipigui with their protection kits
Menstruation is not really a good period of the month where ever you are.
In Africa it is probably worse that in more developped continents.
The subject of menstruations is a taboo in most of the families in Burkina Faso. They come as a surprise to the girls which can be very disturbing. Hopefully the girl will have a sister or a friend who can help her understand what is happening.
Then girls do not have real protection which can even make it more dramatic if she has stains on her cloth.
ASAP help women and girls to better understand their body and provide proper protection with a kit developped by Days for Girls and produced in the workshop of Actions pour les Besoins des Femmes (ABF) in Bobo Dioulasso.
This is really a very important project so that women and girls can have a normal life all the time, do not miss school and keep their self esteem.
We need your support to reach our objectives of 2.000 girls / women who can be helped.
Thank you communicate this project to your family and friends.
