End Period Poverty
On top of the underdiscussed topics in Nigeria is menstrual health, feminine hygiene, and reproductive health. For a reason, people shy away from. If not discussed properly, this lack of awareness can result in serious issues for women, from infections that could lead to sexual and reproductive diseases to early pregnancies.
This initiative started in 2020, and we have touched over 5,000 lives and distributed sanitary towel and essentials to over 30,000. Our most recent outreach was at Oko-Agbon, Ebute Metta where we had officials of Molped Plc and also representatives of The BMBG Foundation from the UK.
It’s however sad that in a recent study conducted since the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, it was stated that 1 in 3 young people feel less confident because they’ve missed school activities due to lack of sanitary items, and parents/guardians in the country are worried about their ongoing ability to afford period products – an issue known as period poverty.
