Community Engagement and Awareness Session on Menstrual Hygiene

Menstruation is a normal and healthy part of life for most women, roughly half of the female population around 26 % of the global population are of reproductive age. most women menstruate each month for about two to seven days. Yet, as normal as it is, menstruation is stigmatized around the world. lack of good information about menstruation leads to damaging misconceptions and can cause girls to miss out on normal childhood experiences and activities. Stigma, taboos, and myths prevent adolescent girls from the opportunity to learn about menstruation and develop healthy habits in the society, as FRAD Foundation envisions a sustainable future where everyone can access development leaving no one behind, we believe in a community where every girl can learn, play, and safeguard her own health without experiencing stress, shame, or unnecessary barriers to information or supplies during menstruation is possible and attainable even during emergencies.
thus, this event is aimed to Create awareness on menstrual hygiene and sensitize the public to eradicate the stigma women and girls experience when menstruating. The event is scheduled to take place in Borno State, Maiduguri. The awareness sessions will be implemented in 3 locations which are Molai, Sulumbri and Garba Buzu Camp Maiduguri.
