#Padgirl initiative is a project borne out of the need to empower young girls and women who are going through various form of stigmatization, abuse and health challenges as a result their natural month cycle which is a natural biological process. For most poor, vulnerable and disability girls in Nigeria, as signs of menstruation gets close, it serves as a constant reminder of the oncoming abuse and stigmatization they are about to face. What should be a proud period in their lives, turn out to be their most dreadful period. For most of these girls, menstruation is a dream-killed because they never get to attend schools during menstruation. While for others who cannot afford a good menstrual pad, they rely on old rags and leaves as alternatives. Some are sexually abused in their quest to look for money to buy menstrual pads.
