International Day of the Girl

To celebrate the International Day of the Girl, CDN will be holding another menstrual hygiene workshops for adolescent girls in Cameroon.

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.

Thanks for helping Keep Girls In School.
