In January we were delighted to receive support from a foundation to build a girls washroom and deliver training for the girls at Akanyo primary school.
This project will have a direct impact on the girls at this rural school as they will be able to manage their menstruation with dignity, and will be able to increase their attendance at school.
We are pleased to report that this project is running to schedule. The construction of the girls' washroom is due to be completed this week. The only jobs now remaining are to plaster the walls and cement the floor.
The workshop is due to be delivered to the girls of Akanyo Primary School on the 30th March 2012, in time for the opening of their new washroom.
We have already placed our order with Afripads for the re-usable sanitary products; these will be distributed to the girls as part of their workshop.
