Pad A Girl Campaign – Providing Sanitary Pads to 50 Vulnerable Girls for the Next Quarter

“Now more than ever, we must renew our commitment to work together so that girls enjoy and exercise their rights and can play a full and equal part in their communities and societies. Investing in girls is investing in our common future.” UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

Gender equality though is a fundamental basic right, is not enjoyed to the fullest by women and girls. Women and girls around the world experience discrimination and gender inequalities in areas such as employment, menstrual and physical health, and safety from violence. Menstruation, though a natural occurrence is unfortunately widening the gender gap, stealing the teenage life of some vulnerable girls.
The girls we work with at the Street Children Empowerment Foundation are very vibrant, focused, and determined to make a change but the sad realities and harsh conditions in accessing menstrual hygiene products and sanitary facilities, are keeping them out of school.

It is so unacceptable that many girls globally are denied access to basic menstrual hygiene products, resulting in missed school days and even health complications, due to the improvised rags and unhygienic tissue papers they use. Some girls in these communities suffer from domestic violence, sexual exploitation, and unhealthy relationships to afford a sanitary pad for the month.

You can change this narrative and salvage this heartbreaking situation by supporting the “Pad A Girl Campaign” which seeks to provide sanitary pads and menstrual hygiene products for the 50 girls we work with in Jamestown in commemoration of the International Day of the Girl on October 11, 2023.
This will be an unforgettable gift to them as we make the next quarter of their lives memorable and less stressful.

Please support this worthy campaign either in kind or cash and help keep girls in vulnerable and street situations in class throughout this academic year.
