Although menstruation is an integral part of human life, it is often considered a taboo and has met many negative cultural hindrances and attitudes. Women and girls especially those in school suffer from the lack of proper sanitary materials, services and facilities to manage menstruation hygienically. These deprivations force the girls to stay at home during her period and often become barrier to quality education in Ghana.
The project responds to these challenges by building the capacity of 250 schools and teachers to improve and uphold menstrual hygiene management among 25000 girls selected from deprived public schools in vulnerable communities. The project is executed through co-curricular education on menstrual hygiene management among adolescent girls, Skills training in making re-usable sanitary pads, setting of welfare counselling rooms and conducting series of community advocacy workshops.
