The 28th of May is commemorated every year as Menstrual Hygiene Day. The event was initiated by WASH United to serve as aneutral platform for bringing together individuals, organizations, social businesses and the media to create a united and strong voice for women around the world.
To commemorate this year’s edition of the event, Girls Excel launched a new project called ‘Donate a Pad and Keep a Girl in School’ to create access to sanitary towels for girls in rural communities and refugee camps in Cameroon. To promote reproductive health education and engage policy makers by advocating for a better menstrual health policy in Cameroon. The first phase of the project was implemented in Mabeta Fishing Station-Limbe, South West Region of Cameroon on may 27th,2016 under the theme ‘Menstruation Matters to Everyone, Everywhere!
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, 50 girls benefitted from atleast 6 months supply of sanitary pads in this community.
