Workshops on Menstrual and Mental Health Awareness

By Veronique Catany | Director and co-founder of Chance4all

Our last workshop on “Menstrual Education and Sexual Reproductive Health” was held in April 2022: 54 girls from three different schools attended this workshop. During the workshop, the following topics were discussed by professionals (nurse, social worker) and staff from Chance4all:

  • Contraceptives and Reproductive health;
  • Mental health awareness;
  • Menstrual health, hygiene and myths associated with menstruation;
  • Introduction of menstrual cups; and
  • Use of reusable pads, their benefits and maintenance.

At the end of the workshop the following items were distributed to the girls.

  • Re –useable pads five pairs per  individual
  • Washing power
  • Bathing soap
  • Toothpaste and toothbrush
  • Snack pack, fruits and juice.

13 GIRLS were selected as cup ambassadors and will receive a cup. During our next workshop we will invite these ambassadors to speak about their experience.

We intend to include boys in our next workshop and include topics of substance abuse.

Stay tuned for our next report...

In the meantime, enjoy the video made by one of our students at Chance4all in collaboration with another student of the world
