Projects

Access to safe and dignified menstruation is a fundamental need yet over 100million women and girls around the world lack access to menstrual care. Caring For Girls With Period Initiative aids in educating girls and women especially the not so privileged ones about menstrual hygiene, sex education, importance of education and self-esteem amongst others. Over the years, we’ve been able to reach out to over 30,000 women and girls and we intend to do more to make sure that period poverty is totally eliminated from Africa.
