Hello, my name is Ivana, I'm nineteen years old and I am from Nairobi, Kenya. I have founded an NGO called Periodboon and whose main objective is to provide menstrual health products to underprivileged women and girls in both urban and rural areas. This will be done through rollouts every four months where the women and girls can have a reliable source of menstrual hygiene products. To keep record of all their collection they will have a manual physical card where there collections and menstrual health in general will be recorded.
In that same light, studies have also shown that 50% of girls have never openly discussed menstruation leaving a big gap that Periodboon is also seeking to fill. We provide menstrual health talks to girls aged 10-14 about growing up and menstruation with hopes of slowly reducing this percentage. We understand that " the talk" can be a very difficult topic to go about for many parents and guardians, therefore the talks are provided by young women who the girls feel comfortable and open around.
Through your assistance we will be able to achieve these two main objectives with ease and see a change in the way menstrual health and hygiene is perceived in the country. Your support will be greatly appreciated.
