We are current campaigning on free reusable pads for girls in rural Tanzania to stay in school. Girls missed up to 6weeks missed per year. This leads to a girl child being behind when it’s come to syllabus in school. Many young girls and women have no choice but to use pieces of old foam mattresses, cut blankets, rags even chicken feathers, instead of a sanitary towel. This is a huge problem, especially among school girls in rural areas. Many are too embarrassed and nervous to go to school during their period.
