WHAT’S IN THE WORKS
Menstruation is a perfectly normal part of life, yet, girls and women go through challenges to manage their period every month.
In India, 23 million girls drop out of school annually, due to a lack of hygiene facilities. In Nigeria, 1 in 10 girls skips school due to their periods. In Indonesia, 25% of adolescent girls had never discussed menstruation before their first menses and 17% were not aware that menstruation is a sign of puberty.
In collaboration with BKKBN “Indonesian National Population and Family Planning Board – connected with the Ministry of Health in Indonesia”, we have launched a new section on Menstrual Hygiene under “Generasi Berencana” or “Genre” subject.
