In addition to having to live with the damaging taboo that surrounds menstruation in Cameroon, many girls and women there struggle every month just to manage their periods hygienically, something that many of us take for granted. Lacking access to basic sanitary and hygiene products or facilities, women are forced to use unhygienic cloth and girls often skip school out of shame and fear of bullying. Lack of basic products or knowledge about how to manage menstruation can lead to both physical and psychological harm and results in girls missing out on crucial education. UNESCO estimates that 1 in 10 African girls skip school during their period, eventually leading to a higher school drop out rate.
