Her Hygiene Matters
Let it bother you that a fellow girl or woman today stands a risk of a reproductive tract infection because she doesn't have hygiene products to collect her blood
Teach girls to speak for girls. The world will be better (1/7)

I watched as shock and dismay covered the faces of the young girls as I spoke to them about challenges vulnerable women and girls encounter during menstruation and after child birth. There has always been a big divide in the hygiene state of girls in the city and those from low income communities. A gap so wide we must raise girls in cities to lend their voices to advocate for girls in low income communities. You see, while girls in city have the options to choose different hygiene products during mensturation, most girls from low income communities are limited to using papers and rags. Women from low income communities aren't left out of this too as they are faced with using unhygienic material after delivery to collect blood. Most women and girls in low income communities do not know the plight vulnerable women go through especially as it regards their hygiene state. Our Her Hygiene & Her Campaign also creates awareness about these to young girls in the city and raises tgem as hygiene advicates fir vulnerable women and girls.

Hello, Odion,

This is just a great idea. I’m glad you’ve observed this: “ A gap so wide we must raise girls in cities to lend their voices to advocate for girls in low income communities.”

Please continue to update us. What a great way for city girls to help those in the low-income communities. Great project! Thank you for sharing!
