Help to raise valuable donations to Pad A Girl
In many parts of the world, many girls miss school during their periods or menstration. By giving them the knowledge and means to manage their menstrual hygiene effectively, we’re making sure they don’t miss out on an education.
United Nations estimates suggest that 1 in 10 girls from Sub-Saharan Africa miss school during their menstrual cycle, with some missing out on 20% of their education.
This is a common story for adolescent girls across the whole world as sanitary pads are expensive and inaccessible. In addition, menstruation or period is considered a taboo topic, causing embarrassment and exclusion from school, family life and social activities for girls when they are menstruating.
Why do girls need sanitary pads to stay in school?
Nancy Muller a Senior Program Officer working in menstrual health disclosed that You start to see a real difference in rates of school attendance for boys and girls as they move from primary school to secondary school. Rates for girls can be 8 to 10 percent lower than for boys. There are a lot of reasons for this. If there’s a need for help in the home, for example, often a girl may be held back.
Now, if a girl doesn’t have access to sanitary pads or a safe and clean place at school to change them, that becomes another reason to keep her home. She starts missing a few days every month, she falls behind, and she may eventually drop out. In fact, some small studies in Ghana and Uganda found that if you provide a girl with underwear and sanitary pads, her chances of staying in school are 30 to 50 percent higher.
Keeping girls in school is important to health and development—not only for the girls but for their communities and countries. When girls stay in school, they are less likely to get HIV infection, wages go up, teenage pregnancy rates go down, and the children they have are healthier. You educate a girl and you change the world.
In Conclusion, With the alarmng increase in the rate of world economy inflation which translates to increase in poverty rate, this means the number of girls that cannot afford to purchase a sanitry pad is increasing daily.
