Menstrual Hygiene: Young Lady Distributes Free Sanitary Pads to Girls in Kano Schools

By Victor Habila, Kano
As part of her commitments geared towards the betterment of the society, a young visionary Nigerian, Blessing Festus Gabriel, has donated free sanitary pads to over 200 girls in Kano schools.

Describing the movement as Somiez Outreach, she said it’s part of the activities earmarked for her birthday celebration in 2022.

Speaking to Newsweb Express, Miss Blessing expressed gratitude to God Almighty for granting her the opportunity to celebrate another year by giving out to the society in a little way she can.

According to her; “My motivation behind Somiez Outreach is: starting from “pad a girl child”, I want to create awareness to young girls on hygiene during menstruation and for them to know periods are natural and not a shameful thing or taboo. And I’m also motivated to reach out to the less privileged. Somiez “Pad a girl child” is just a step towards other outreaches in future. I’m just here to reach out to young people and the less privileged”.

She raised concerns on how many vulnerable girls are unable to access sanitary pads, instead they are left with the option of using napkins, which she says causes infection.

“Menstruation can affect girl’s health, education and dignity in the society If not properly managed, menstruation can interrupt daily life. painful periods can affect girls attendance and performance at school. Lack of adequate facilities and materials causes restrictions on girls’ movements during their periods”, Blessing noted.

The Somiez Outreach convener further advised parents to teach girls how to manage their periods so that they can be confident and can also stay in school, while calling on the government to help with improved menstrual materials and health workers to educate young girls about periods in a shame-free way.

During the outreach, the students were sensitised on the healthy measures to be adopted in order to maintain a menstrual hygiene during their monthly periods.

Also speaking, the Principal and the Vice Principal of the beneficiary schools, Government Girls Secondary School Dabo and Gateway to Knowledge for Success College, Hajiya Binta Abdulhamid and Mrs. Gloria Nwosu, respectively applauded the convener for such an initiative.

They called on the Government and other organizations to also come to take girl child matters with utmost importance.

They both saw the movement as a welcomed development reiterated that it’s the kind of initiatives that the society needs in order to better the lives of Girl-Child especially in educational institutions auchbas secondary schools where teenagers are found.
