As an effort to alleviate menstrual poverty among the girls child, a non-governmental organisation, Favour Amaechi Foundation has commenced efforts to reach out to 1,000 girls with sanitary pads.

Tagged 'Pad Up A Girl Child' the foundation has set aside December 11, 2021 as a day for road walk to raise awareness on importance of sanitary pad in the health of the girl child.

The road walk against menstrual poverty is expected to commence at 9:am from the main gate of Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Imo State.

It will also feature menstrual education and distribution of feminine products to 1,000 girls. 

Founder of the NGO, Favour Amaechi, one of the winners of Face of Democracy Nigeria Beauty Pageant in a chat with newsmen expressed concern over poor hygienic conditions under which the girl child manages her menstrual flow on the account of unavailability of sanitary pads.

This she attributed to increasing cost of the essential sanitary item which according to her is unaffordable to young ladies in the primary and secondary schools.

The 22-year-old Ezinihitte, Mbaise Imo State born graduate of Federal Polytechnic Nekede therefore solicits support towards this project.

According to her, plans are ongoing to set up hygiene dock in targeted primary and secondary schools in Imo to increase access to sanitary pads among the pupils.

Donations towards this project can be made through account details below:
