No information about menstruation can be over emphasized. There are still some school going girls who need to be taught how to take care of themselves during the menstrual period.
Maintaining proper hygiene during menstruation can be a bit problematic when one finds herself in certain disheartening circumstances.
That’s where women of substance, teachers, NGOs, parents, well wishers and other care givers come in to educate young girls on hygienic practices before, during and after menstruation.
Tuesday, May 25 was ‘Menstrual Hygiene Day’ and The Rebranded lady, an NGO under the leadership of Mrs. Faith Senyo was at Ashiyie Model Basic School in Accra.
The group taught pupils how to make reusable pads as an alternative to disposable pads. Reusable pads can work well with girls who at a point cannot afford disposable pads.
The CEO of The Rebranded Lady together with her team stressed the need to engage in hygienic practices during menstruation. They also took the girls through series of activities that will enable girls feel comfortable and healthy during menstruation.
As the keynote speaker, Mrs. Faith Senyo(CEO and Founder of The Rebranded Lady) enlightened girls on how to wash reusable pads to avoid infections and other complications.
The CEO of The Rebranded Lady further admonished her audience to remember that “washable pads are a sure way to ending period poverty.”
Thus, girls are not to panic anymore when disposable pads are not available.
Members of The Medical Women Association were there to support The Rebranded Lady and to give professional advice to girls on menstrual hygiene.
Lexta Ghana, producers of Yazz Sanitary pad also contributed their quota to the success of the programme.
KFM TV, the media partner of the group graced the occasion.
Let’s keep spreading the message until all girls get to feel good and healthy before, during and after their period.
