2024 Ending Menstrual Poverty Campaign

Join us in Ending Menstrual Poverty and Empowering Adolescent Girls for a Brighter Future

In Nigeria, like many parts of the world, menstrual poverty remains a significant barrier to the well-being and advancement of adolescent girls. Ornaments of Grace and Virtue International Organization (OGAV) is proud to announce our upcoming “2024 Ending Menstrual Poverty Campaign“, dedicated to equipping young girls with the support they need for mental health and wellness, while also providing them with reusable sanitary towels. Our mission is simple yet profound: to reduce menstrual poverty and empower adolescent girls for a brighter, more promising future.

Understanding Menstrual Poverty

Menstrual poverty is a multifaceted issue that affects millions of girls worldwide. It refers to the lack of access to menstrual hygiene products, adequate sanitation facilities, and education about menstruation. For many girls, menstruation is not just a biological process but a source of shame, stigma, and hardship. Without access to proper menstrual hygiene products, girls often resort to using unhygienic materials such as rags, leaves, or even mud, putting their health and dignity at risk.

In Nigeria, menstrual poverty exacerbates existing inequalities, hindering girls’ education, health, and overall well-being. According to UNICEF, one in ten girls in sub-Saharan Africa misses school during their menstrual cycle, amounting to as much as 20% of the school year. This not only affects their academic performance but also perpetuates a cycle of poverty and marginalization.

The OGAV Approach

At OGAV, we believe that every girl deserves access to safe, hygienic, and dignified menstrual products. Our “2024 Ending Menstrual Poverty” campaign takes a holistic approach to addressing this issue by providing girls with:

  1. Reusable Sanitary Towels: We understand the financial constraints faced by many families, which is why we distribute reusable sanitary towels to adolescent girls. These environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternatives ensure that girls can manage their menstruation with dignity and without interruption to their education.
  2. Mental Health and Wellness Support: Menstruation is often accompanied by physical discomfort and emotional challenges. Through our campaign, we offer mental health and wellness support to help girls navigate this sensitive time with confidence and resilience. From educational workshops to counseling services, we provide girls with the tools and resources they need to prioritize their mental well-being.
  3. Community Engagement and Education: Ending menstrual poverty requires more than just providing products; it requires breaking the silence and stigma surrounding menstruation. We engage communities in open and honest conversations about menstruation, challenging harmful myths and taboos. By promoting menstrual hygiene education and awareness, we empower girls to take control of their bodies and their futures.
