Menstrual Dignity for Refugees in Chad & Jordan

Thanks to you, our amazing GlobalGiving donors, we are making a difference in the lives of women and girls in Chad. Currently, Chad hosts a large number of women and girls in particularly vulnerable positions because of the influx of refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) from Sudan and the Central African Republic, Nigerian refugees fleeing Boko Haram, and 115,000 returning Chad citizens who had formerly been displaced. Such a concentrated population coupled with the Covid-19 pandemic, political unrest, the impact of climate change, internal development issues, chronic poverty, and a tense socio-economic environment have made it even harder for women and girls in Chad to access period products.

Using your generously donated funds to address this urgent need, Days for Girls’ outreach in Chad is in full swing. In October 2021, we successfully conducted our virtual Training of the Trainers in Arabic. We are overjoyed with the 80 women and 54 men who were trained in DfG’s Ambassador of Women’s Health and Men Who Know programs. These 134 individuals are now leaders in their communities and mentors for young people. Also, after frustrating shipping delays, we are pleased to share that our menstrual kits arrived in Chad, cleared customs, and our new leaders have begun distributing the 21,001 kits in 13 refugee camps. With each kit distribution, more women and girls are receiving vital education and menstrual dignity, and more men and boys are learning how to respect and support the women in their lives. 

We are also pleased to report that distributions continue among refugee and IDP women and girls in Jordan. We recently shipped 6,000 menstrual kits with help from our partner Convoy of Hope. Each of these kits represents knowledge, respect, and a sense of control over one’s period that every woman and girl deserves. 

Thank you for your important role in our outreach to individuals across all of these populations.
