Every girl deserves an equal chance at succeeding in life. No one should have to live life from the sidelines, but the sad truth even in this progressive age, is that the African girl child faces tremendous challenges just to make it to school. The African Girl Foundation was founded to help our girls overcome these challenges.
It is unacceptable for society to allow girls to miss out on school due to menstruation. Period!
Currently 65% of girls cannot afford sanitary pads. This is a shockingly high statistic. It impedes the educational development of our women, and accounts for a huge void in the economy.
The African Girl Foundation’s #KeepOurGirlsInSchool Initiative aims to provide free reusable sanitary pads that to all school girls unable to afford this basic necessity.
