Summary

Most girls from deprived homes though have the desire to excel academically miss school days and eventually dropout as a result of low self-esteem and their inability to acquire appropriate sanitary pads. The Girls Closet Initiative addresses this issue by educating girls on menstrual health, providing them with reusable sanitary pads to manage their menstruation confidently and engaging them in mentorship. This will enable them to attain their fullest potential and live a life of dignity.

Education is very important for every child whether boy or girl. It is one of the most critical areas of empowerment of women. Among children not attending school, there are twice as many girls as boys and among illiterate adults, there are twice as many women as men. Most girls, especially those in the rural areas even though they have the desire to complete school don't due to several circumstances such as; unproductive environment, lack of sanitary materials, poor school supplies, etc
