Keep Girls In School. Period.
Young girls in Cameroon miss an average of 4 days of school each month during their period simply because they lack the supplies to allow them to continue to attend. That is nearly a week of school - 20 percent of a school month. We think that should stop.

In Cameroon, less than 50 percent of girls attend primary school, and of that group, only 32 percent go on to attend secondary school. These girls miss an average of 4 days of school each month simply because they get their periods. That is nearly a week of school - 20 percent of a school month.

Community Development Network gives workshops and training to girls aged 11 to 17 that teach them about menstrual hygiene, sexual and reproductive health, and their human rights. During the workshops, the girls are also provided with sustainable menstrual hygiene products, such as menstrual underwear, reusable pads, and menstrual cups.

In order to continue giving workshops and empowering girls, we need your help. Our partner, period.org, has agreed to help us out with getting discounts on menstrual hygiene products. So here’s what you can do to help us keep these young women in school all year long:  $8 buys one reusable pad.  $10 buys one menstrual cup.  $18 buys one of each.
