Hello, Ruby Queen! 54 Ruby, Tourmaline, Crystal Mala $225.00
Access to menstrual and reproductive health in Tanzania is extremely limited, which perpetuates harmful taboos. Access to sanitary products is a challenge, and girls often use homemade methods that are unhygienic and uncomfortable. This causes girls to miss school or other social activities, and increases health problems. This project will provide adolescent girls in northern Tanzania with in-depth education to teach them how their bodies work, and distribute reusable menstrual products
When girls understand how their bodies work they are able to make safe and healthy decisions for themselves. This education will also break down harmful menstrual taboos which limit girls' activities during menses. Access to reusable menstrual products remove the financial burden of menstruation, and ensures girls have safe products to use every month, helping them to concentrate and excel in school!
Long Term Impact
To invest in girls education and girls health is a direct investment in the future. This program will help 800 girls to stay in school, which will increase graduation rates, and the number of girls attending post-secondary education and becoming community leaders.
