In collaboration with Si Jeunesse Savait, UNFPA, UN Women, Enabel and catholic relief services, CMC is organizing an event in Kinshasa that unites pertinent actors in the menstruel hygiene domain in the DR Congo. Different projects and programs will be presented, after which participants can exchange and explore various stands based on menstruation. We wish to raise awareness and fight period poverty on the national level.
Leading up to the event we will do awareness raising activities with 300 school girls and distribute menstrual products. We have a hash tag campaign for the event #MenstruesSansContraintes. We are working with Julienne Lusenge, who has been named by us as MHM ambassador, to raise awareness and fight period poverty.
