Better Life for Girls Project
Menstruation is natural. Yet, for many girls around the world this is a time of worry, shame and isolation.
As a result, one in ten girls will skip class when they’re on their periods. Many stay at home, feeling isolated and ashamed when they lack access to sanitary pads and adequate facilities to manage their periods safely.
Our Better Life for Girls project educates girls and their communities about menstrual and reproductive health while also providing Dignity Kits with vital sanitary products.
During educational talks, the Good Neighbours team discusses fertility, family planning and menstrual symptoms. Our Dignity Kits, including soap, pairs of underwear, reusable pads, and menstrual bracelets to track their periods are also distributed to the girls.
Men are also encouraged to participate in the sessions so they understand menstruation and the importance of good menstrual hygiene.
