Millennium Fellowship Project: Female Pro

The name of our project is “FEMALE PRO", an initiative made up of sexual health advocates working as a team to empower under privileged women and girls with comprehensive sexual education. Lack of adequate sexual health education especially in poor communities was a major problem which the FEMALE PRO team identified in our local community. Therefore, our initiative aims at increasing awareness on the dangers of teenage pregnancy, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) , toilet infections, Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM), family planning and female Genital Mutilation. We also exposed women and girls in a practical session to the WHO recommended hand washing steps to diminish the spread of infections. The goal is to positively impact over 200 women and girls in our local community and raise sexual reproductive health advocates that will become a chain of influence. This initiative does not just empower women and girls with knowledge but seeks to provide quality re-usable pads alongside useful knowledge on the proper use of these reusable pads which can last up to 2 years.
