Commemoration of MHM Day
On the 30th of May 2022, the TCF team commemorated the 2022 Menstrual Hygiene Day at the just commissioned LEA Kuchiko – Ija Primary School in Niger State supported by FLOKI. The team sensitized selected girls from primary 1-6 on Puberty, Menstruation, Menstrual cycle and how to manage and properly dispose of sanitary pads.
Practical demonstrations were held on how to use a sanitary pad and the menstrual cycle beads. At the end of the session, the girls were asked to demonstrate what was taught and these demonstrations showed that they understood the training. Selected girls who had started their menstruation were given the Menstrual Hygiene Kit while other girls were given sanitary pads.
