Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM)

We teach both girls and boys about menstruation because we believe that we are creating a better future for our youth and if that is the case then we cannot separate the two gender which leads to gender balance.

This is a sub program with a target to reach adolescent girls in primary and secondary schools in order to minimize school drop outs, poor performance, early pregnancies, abortion and maternal deaths. As a return this contributes to adolescent girls and young women to have self-awareness and therefore reaching their dreams.

The Menstrual Health Education Program covers:

The female and male reproductive systems
A phased description of the menstrual cycle
Tracking the menstrual cycle
The link between menstruation and reproduction
Instruction on how to use the menstrual kit
And sanitation and hygiene best practices while menstruating and using the kit
