Community service by RuWCED's youths at the Ndop District Hospital
Majority of women and girls in rural areas cannot afford sanitary pads during menstruation. We offer health talks every week to different schools and demonstrate to young girls how to use pads. This project aims at improving the level of health and sanitation within primary and secondary schools.
Reproductive Education for Rural Girls and Women
Majority of women and girls in rural areas cannot afford sanitary pads during menstruation. This lack compromises menstrual hygiene since they resort to used cloths etc. Most especially, it affects the general confidence and psyche of women especially girls in primary school who get stained and shy away from school during menses. Also, there are few or none existent sanitary facilities for the disposal of faeces which further compromises community health.
