As our core value, we believe in a society where the right government policies and programs are centred on developing the potential of women, girls and other young people by harnessing them to be positive societal change agents. This is regardless of age, culture, religion, sexual orientation, civil, political and social status.

    • Project

      According to WHO, 1 in 3 girls in sub-Saharan Africa miss school due to lack of menstrual hygiene products. Over 75% of women and girls in Nigeria, especially in rural areas, cannot afford menstrual products. A huge number of girls in Plateau state do not have access to any form of sanitary protection. This limits their access to education, economic and social activities. This does not only affect an individual’s life and career prospects but also their entire community. There is also a lack of education, guidance and counselling on puberty and sexual reproductive health except for myths, taboos, stigma and shame which leads to low self-esteem.

      The HYMEN project addresses the perpetual challenge of the menstrual hygiene management. This is achieved by a social enterprise model where the local community (women & girls) are empowered through skills training and taught to produce low cost biodegradable menstrual pads that are distributed to women/girls. The project comprises of various parameters focused on achieving Sustainable Development Goals 1,2,3,4,5 and 8; reduced poverty, zero hunger, promoting good health and wellbeing, quality education, gender equality, sanitation, decent work and economic growth.

      This project directly impacts over 5,000 girls across the three senatorial districts of Plateau state. It potentially increases school attendance for the girls as well as empower over 500 women on social and economic aspects. It utilizes all avenues such as schools, community groups, & faith-based organizations as points for training creating enough awareness regarding the importance of hygienic menstrual products, therefore, improving the health, economy and environment for women/girls, especially in the rural areas.
