SCALING UP THE MENSTRUAL HYGIENE PROJECT



We are interested in partnering with your Charity in order to form a strong alliance to make positive change and we can together truthfully say that our efforts will be supported and acknowledged in improving the quality of life among all those, whom we serve.



Reproductive Advocate Health Education (RAHE)-GHANA is an independent, non-profit, development organization devoted to improving the quality of reproductive health services, general conditions of vulnerable people and communities through a right based approach. Since February 2014, RAHE-GHANA has been championing social intervention programs aimed at tackling vulnerability to diseases, hunger, and violence against women and children.

RAHE-Ghana addresses these challenges under its flagship project known as the Menstrual Hygiene Project. Through integrated and sustainable interventions of the project, RAHE GHANA mobilises resources and relevant stakeholders to strengthen the capacity of schools, adolescent girls and deprived communities across Ghana in managing menstrual hygiene.

The project selects 100 adolescent girls as target beneficiaries from Primary 5 to JHS 2 for mentorship and education on menstrual hygiene management in each school selected to participate in the project.

The MHP specifically provides education and awareness creation on menstrual hygiene, provides and improves access to sanitary materials through pilot training in sewing reusable sanitary pads, establishes welfare counselling centre in schools to help girls who menstruate during school sessions and community workshops aimed at generating communal ownership and support for the project beyond completion stage.

As part of our commitments towards the attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals especially Goal 3,4,5,6 RAHE Ghana is devoted to ensure that, about 1000 schools are earmarked to benefit from the Menstrual Hygiene Project by 2025.

Thus every year we will be working with 143 schools to help shape the lives of over 14,000 adolsecent girls in deprived communities.

Thanks to the generosity and care of the Nederlands Albert Schweitzer Funds based in Holland, LDS CHARITIES and the FRANCE EMBASSY in Ghana 25 schools have so far being covered by the Menstrual Hygiene Project.

The Menstrual Hygiene Project is a good entry point to improve menstrual hygiene management (MHM) and to initiate discussions on broader issues related to menstruation.



The Project objectives include the following,

To strengthen Girls menstrual hygiene management by the school management;

To increase the capacity of selected public schools to effectively manage and sustain menstrual hygiene and sanitation practices;

To increase awareness on proper hygiene and sanitation practices among pupils and community members

To realise these objectives the Board of RAHE GHANA proposes to conduct training sessions.
