Menstrual Hygiene Management Program-MHM

Youth Support Initiative in 2016 introduced this program supported by GFC, and in 2017 we continued to provide sanitary towels to girls in schools. This is to reduce on the number of days girls miss lessons while they are attending to their menstrual periods. According to reports world wide, girls miss lessons for close to 5 days in each month, hence affecting their performance to some extent. In reducing the cost towards this program, YSI intends to partner with Expanded Church Response on HIV/AIDS in training girls to make re-usable sanitary towels if we have to sustain the program and benefit many. YSI will have to meet the training cost while ECR will provide human resource to conduct the training in all our schools.
