Menstrual Hygiene School tour

The menstrual hygiene school tour is an initiative of Africa Education Aid for Development Network (AFEADEN) aimed at creating the much needed awareness about menstruation.
At AFEADEN We aim at increasing children’s access to quality education through integrated programs that eliminate the underlying obstacles which prevent children from going to school and learning in Africa.
Menstrual hygiene day (MHD or MH Day) is an annual awareness day, on 28 May, that aims to break taboos and raise awareness about the importance of good menstrual hygiene management (MHM) for women and adolescent girls worldwide.
In Africa most children stay away from school while menstruating
We want to ensure that:
• Young girls are aware that they can carry out daily routine such as going to school or doing household chores while menstruating.
• How to use hygiene products and sanitary pads
• Knowledge of the use of the tracker to record menstruation start and stop dates.
• Accurately learn to calculate their cycle to Prevent potential situations of embarrassment.
• Make them aware that maintaining proper menstrual hygiene is important for well-being and development.
During the school tour, Personal Hygiene items, sanitary pads and Menstruation tracker were distributed to over one thousand, five hundred (1500) girls, while doctors were on ground to tutor and answer questions asked by the girls.
They were taught how to track and calculate their period and were equipped to teach their peers on menstrual Hygiene
