This year, on the commemoration of Menstrual Hygiene day, we conducted training in three Primary Schools in Ilala, Kigamboni and Ubungo Districts in Dar es Salaam i.e. Boma, Kigamboni and Ubungo National Primary Schools respectively.
We envisioned to reach 1000 young girls from these schools. In this training, among other things we taught them on how to make simple and reusable sanitary pads. Menstrual Hygiene education is a very essential tool in tackling issues of teen pregnancies in our communities. We need to break the silence and embrace our young girls with this kind of education.
We enjoyed spending time time with these girls.
Happy Menstrual Hygiene Day!
