GEM-GHANA in partnership with a Pakistani based social enterprise call Aurat Raaj, organised a day’s Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) education for forty (40) adolescent girls in Excellence Academy Junior High School to provide the girls with some information and education on Menstruation. The two organisations also donated forty (40) packs of YAZZ Disposable Sanitary pads to the participants.
The objective of the MHM education is to promote the best personal hygiene practices amongst adolescent girls during their menses. Also we took the opportunity to introduce to the girls Aurat Raaj’s Chatbot on menstrual hygiene management widely used in Pakistan by many girls and women. The link to the chatbot is https://www.auratraaj.com/englishmhm/
The girls and staff expressed their appreciation for our kind gesture towards touching the lives of underprivileged adolescent girls.
