Menstrual Hygiene Day 2023 with the theme "making menstruation a normal fact of life by 2030" was a huge success. We were honored to reach out to girls at the Assemblies of God Church, Ikot Mbonde, Itu, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. 250+ (two hundred and fifty plus) members were in attendance as we delivered a talk on menstrual hygiene.
The goal was to raise awareness among members of our community to be educated on menstruation so they can support girls in access to period-friendly water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities.
We are happy that Iban Ifiok Foundation touched the lives of girls between the ages of 12-19 years by giving out gift bags that included sanitary pads, body spray (roll-on), and menstrual hygiene brochures. We so much believe that this little act of love has transformed the minds of our community members and that no girl should be held back because she menstruates. We want them to know that menstruation can be managed safely, hygienically, confidently, and without shame.
