the keep girls in school campaign
We are proud to partner with The Yonkofa Project for The Keep Girls In School Campaign to help provide reusable cloth menstrual pads to junior high school girls in rural western Ghana.
According to UNICEF, 95% of girls in this region miss school the week of their period due to lack of access to period products and many drop out all together.
On a recent trip to this area of Ghana with The Yonkofa Project in September 2021 our Executive Director, Tiffany Herbert, had the privilege to speak to the Headmistresses from several local schools as well as the local Doctor about how our menstrual kits will impact their Village. She also had the great honor of visiting 3 local schools and meeting with classrooms of girls to talk about these kits and demonstrate how they work.
