Girl Guides marking MHM in Zanzibar

Our event will include a whole week of training using the MHM Activity Pack and the Rosie’s World Pack used by girl guides to increase MHM awareness to both genders this is because based on the research we conducted in the month of April 2022 in Zanzibar, it was found that menstruation remains an issue that cannot be bravely discussed in public, and men’s participation in issues relating to MHM remains low, leading to a strong belief that MHM issues are women’s affairs and should be kept secret. We shall also train both genders on how to make reusable sanitary towels so as to help those who can not afford to purchase pads and on the 28th May we shall have a dialogue on all issues relating to MHM. During the event, we plan to involve different stakeholders like the local government, different ministries, and other organizations.
But since our association has members in over 19 regions in Tanzania, we shall also support each region in the commemoration of MHM Day.
