Menstrual Hygiene awareness
Menstruation, or getting your period, is a normal and healthy part of life for most women. However, it’s still stigmatized in many places, including the African Rural Communities. Some girls and women feel embarrassed or ashamed or see it as a taboo when they have to address their periods. It can even cause some people to avoid certain activities and miss out on important experiences. That’s why menstruation awareness and events like National Period Day on October 10th are so important.
