Menstrual Hygiene Management and Puberty Training

Menstruating girls in underserved communities face many challenges which affects their ability to manage their monthly flow in a dignified and hygienic way therefore our work with girls would be incomplete without the menstrual hygiene management and puberty training component.

Before the advent of menarche, most girls have inaccurate knowledge about puberty and menstruation though they have received basic information from their mothers, siblings and peers which affects their perception of menstruation, themselves and their attitude towards it.

Girls of the TCF girls club are provided with accurate information on MHM to debunk the myths and beliefs they had and are taught safe and hygienic menstrual practices and also provided with free hygienic sanitary towels to enhance their dignity and reduce absenteeism from school.
