Training of MHM Female Mentors at Secondary Schools in Abakaliki.

MHM Project: Training of Female Mentors @ Urban Model Secondary School, Comprehensive Secondary School, and Presco Secondary School Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.


Adolescent stage is a critical stage in the lives of teens and this goes a long way to affect their health, relationship and choices.
Adolescent girls have challenges confronting them and many questions bothering them, most times become vulnerable and disadvantaged.

It would shock you to know that more than 50% of girls had no idea what was happening to them the first time they got their period . Some expressed feeling of fear, confusion and stigma and others.
The first period comes without prior notification . Period mishaps are bound to happen , so there is a need for Female Mentors for our girls especially when they are in school.

We decided to bridge this gap , we have successfully trained 12 Female Mentors in the above schools mentioned.
These female teachers are the ones piloting the adolescent girls club, a safe space for girls to learn, exchange and share their experiences and challenges.

Lets empower adolescent girls, we empower nation
