In Nigeria, 40% of females miss several days of school each month because of their menstrual cycle. With no access to safe toilets and with most not being able afford sanitary towels, it leaves many having to make do with very unhygienic means.
At WIN we believe girls have the right to education, we offer education on sexual health and hygiene. We provide sanitary towels to help combat period
poverty and to keep girls our girls school.
