Good Menstrual hygiene is crucial for the health , education and dignity of girls and women.
Understanding how to manage hygiene during menstruation definitely is one of the most essential needs for girls.
Menstrual hygiene is an issue that every girl and woman has to deal with once she enters adolescence and until she reaches menopause.
Unfortunately, issues associated with menstruation are never discussed openly and the silence surrounding menstruation burdens young girls by keeping them ignorant of this biological function.
#Outreach:On breaking the silence on Menstruation , we were able to make the girls discover 3 major aspects-
1) Awareness of the changes and how to prepare for the physical changes thereby alleviating anxiety and confusion that result from the rapid changes during the period.
2) Understanding that the changes are normal and that there is no shame in what is going on with them. These are all a part of the normal process of development.
3) The need to communicate in an open and honest manner . Menstruation should not be something to be ashamed of and to hide.
Indeed, the result was impactful and we are glad the girls can now talk about menstruation freely and not being ashamed.
Together we break the silence on Menstruation. We encourage everyone to talk about it and teach every girl child.
