If you didn’t know, 28th May is menstrual hygiene day. Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day) is a global advocacy platform that brings together the voices and actions of non-profits, government agencies, individuals, the private sector and the media to promote good menstrual hygiene management for all women and girls.
This year, we are highlighting how not every one especially in our society can afford menstrual equipments to participle fully in good menstrual hygiene, in our society we have girls that even miss going to school during their time of the month due to not being able to afford monthly pads, tampons or menstrual cups, and that is unacceptable.
Her Africa is a group of young activists from Tanzania united by the belief that the girl child deserves an equal opportunity to succeed in life. They have a campaign that solely aims into donating menstruation kits to young girls who can not afford it, because they and (we) believe that NO GIRL should be shamed or miss school because they have their period. These kits help young girls go to school during their time of the month by donating items in their menstrual kit or by purchasing the full kit with all the essentials.
The ahmena team is joining hands with @herafrica to raise awareness and asking our readers to help us into donating 30 menstruation kits to young girls who need these basic important products. We are trying to raise a total of Tzs 900,000/= which is equivalent to 30 menstruation kits from @herafrica as seen above. It will be a one month long campaign so please join us on our social media accounts @ahmena to help us spread awareness as well as donate what you can.
All donations are to be sent to these details : Phone number: +255 658 100 444 | Name: Jacqueline Terry | Network: Tigo
