Challenge

About one in 10 girls miss school due to period poverty. Some are exposed to health issues such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) from using materials like old clothes, leaves, etc. Many women are excluded from participating in daily activities while menstruating. Deeply rooted attitudes and myths associate menstruation with disgust and uncleanliness. Information available on menstruation are inadequate/inaccurate. This Project will affect 500 girls and women in rural communities in Nigeria.

Solution

This Project will provide sanitary pads and other menstrual materials to 500 young girls and women. It will, through small discussion groups, foster open, healthy discussions on menstruation and related matters, thus increasing knowledge and ensuring accurate information. There will be workshops to train these women and girls on how to make reusable pads for themselves and also for sale. Awareness will be raised, and proper ways to manage health will be promoted, thus, combating period poverty.

Long-Term Impact

This Project will empower 500 girls and women, helping them become productive and self-reliant. It will reduce the number of girls that miss school while on their period due to period poverty. It will also reduce the burden on healthcare services due to complications like urinary tract infections, etc. encouraging optimal health and well-being. This Project will also encourage participation of girls and women in daily social and cultural activities, reducing gender disparity.
