Call for Reusable Sanitary Pad Contribution for School Adolescent Girls in Tanzania

Dear development partner and any other person, who has a feeling to help,

Girls in Tanzania face a myriad of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) challenges, lack of information, products and services. They use  hygienic   materials   cow dung, sisal fibers, sand  and dry leaves  to manage their menses during menstruation,  schools  lack sanitary disposal facilities, menstruation also  come  with pain and stress, forcing  girls  to abstain from school  for at least 4-7 days  a month and 48-84 days annually, impacting on their school attendance  and academic performances.

CVS Tanzania through her campaign to menstrual health management to school adolescent girls has discovered massive and beyond capacity needs of reusable sanitary pads, Due to alarming poor family economic conditions to access reusable sanitary pads, the girls instead use homemade and other hard substances which are so risky to their health and as a result limit their school performances and lead to school drop outs. We therefore request for your kind contribution.

If you contribute only one reusable sanitary pad which costs 5 US$ equivalent to 10,000 TZS to a Tanzanian girl you will have contributed to the school wellbeing and health future of girls in Tanzania. You will always be updated on how your contribution has been used.

Our program relies on your kind support, Thank you so much for your support.!
