Embracing the Girl Child Initiative Celebrates Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022

To mark the Menstrual Hygiene Day 2022, Embracing the Girl Child Initiative in partnership with “The Young and Called Forum” went on a street outreach/awareness at the well known Dutse market.

World Menstrual Hygiene Day which is celebrated on 28 of May annually, is a chance to highlight the importance of menstrual care and raise awareness about the issues faced by those who don’t have access to sanitary products.

The day is observed on 28 May because menstrual cycles average 28 days in length and women/girls menstruate an average of five days each month. (May is the fifth month of the year).

The significance of this celebration is to break taboos surrounding menstruation, raise awareness about the importance of good menstrual hygiene management worldwide.

“Embracing the Girl Child” is an initiative of “LinkedLegal Attorneys” aimed at providing legal representation, counseling and rehabilitation of victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence, sensitizing the girl child at secondary school level on career choices, puberty, sex education, menstrual hygiene, etc and the free distribution of sanitary towels.

“Young and Called Forum” is an online gathering of young persons from different parts of the world where issues perculiar to the modern day youths are discussed; marriage, relationships,  personality traits, career, spirituality etc. and profer possible structural solutions and support system to each other.

We thank the Young and Called especially Fr. Nnadozie Okoro crs; who is the Spiritual Director of the forum for their massive support.
