We held a three days training with 120 girls under the Caring4girls initiative "My Period My Pride". This initiative, an idea of the organisation Health 4 All international, hosted by WVED Cameroon with facilitation on reusable pads production from HOVO cameroon and sexual and reproductive health rights education from COMAGEND Cameroon, had as objective: To make menstruation, hygiene and management stigma free.
We succeeded to guide the girls;
To understand the importance of menstruation
To produce reusable sanitary pads
To master their menstrual cycle in order to avoid stain
This gave us an insight into the problems of girls. We realised that a social clinic where unbiased information, counseling and mentorship is given will definitely help educate girls faster and minimise stigma stress and fear.
