Training Young Girls in the Production of High Quality Reusable Sanitary Pads in Cameroon and Sierra Leone

Priority Problem: Fighting Period Poverty

.Women and girls across the continent already experience discrimination based on gender across all areas of their social and economic life and taking care of their menstrual health and hygiene shouldn't be another discrimination to be faced especially for rural women and girls.

UNESCO says 1 in 10 girls in Africa miss school because they don't have access to menstrual products or because there aren't adequate toilets to use at school. Others will drop out of school altogether sometimes due to lack of courage to deal with the “social Stigma” about menstruation.

“Period poverty can expose young girls to various infections as their inability to access affordable and safe sanitary products can lead them to using unhealthy alternatives, which puts their health and safety at risk,”


Some women and girls who can’t afford sanitary products use foam and cloth strips for example, while others use newspapers and rags.

The World Bank reports that poor menstrual hygiene can lead to dangerous health risks like reproductive and urinary tract infections, which can lead to future infertility and birth complications; while not having access to hand-washing facilities can lead to the spread of other infections, like Hepatitis B and more.

Period Poverty limits the potential of Girls and women, and widens the gender inequality gap which is a major contributor to global poverty
