Project Name: “Action4Periods”
Action4Periods aimed at promoting menstrual hygiene education and improving access to menstrual products through sensitization, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable means in a rural community (Malshegu). It focused on sustainable menstruation and ending period poverty where girls can have access to locally made reusable pads while not causing harm to their health and environment. The project empowered 60 rural girls with menstrual health and hygiene education and supported them with kits of reusable menstrual pads. The League of Young Female Leaders implemented the project in partnership with Global GLOW, the Ban Ki-moon Center and Days for Girls, Tamale.
