Summary

Many young girls lack the adequate solutions to manage menstruation. 80% of adolescent girls use unhygienic practices such as; old rags, ashes and husk sand and many lack safe spaces for managing periods, a crisis that contributes to school dropouts, infections, Child marriage as well as trafficking. Hence through this project, we want to provide sustainable washable menstruation kits, toilets and WASH education to all the little girls to keep them in school.

Challenge

Managing menstruation safely, hygienically, and with dignity is a challenge to most girls in low income families. This is often due to lack of physical access to latrines during menstruation, a lack of dedicated disposal options for sanitary materials and cultural taboos. All of these constraints can lead to poor menstrual health management and significant health and psychosocial implications for women and girls including social exclusion and vulnerability.

Solution

The poverty cycle can be broken when girls stay in school. One of the solutions is sustainable menstrual hygiene a girl can count on. With it, she can avoid infection, shame, exploitation, early marriage and even trafficking. Your support for this project provides girls quality washable sanitary pads and important reproductive health, hygiene and safe spaces for managing menstruation.

Long-Term Impact

Girls remain in school allowing them to have access to continuous education and sustainable solutions. This effects current and future generations of women and men, playing an imperative role in breaking the cycle of poverty. Communities are empowered to discuss and provide feminine hygiene, health and sanitation for themselves and others. One woman recently said, "It is as if it is taboo to be a woman." This program changes that with simple, direct and effective solutions that empower.
