Do you have any stats on access to feminine hygiene products in Ghana? Access to feminine hygiene dramatically increases girls’ school attendance, reduces dropout rates, and help break the cycle of illiteracy and poverty for girls and women in Ghana.
Days for Girls (DFG) in Ghana works to provide reusable feminine hygiene kits that last for three years to school-aged Ghanaian girls with a focus on poor and rural areas, empowering young women to continue their education. DFG also trains local women to make the products for their villages, thus providing an income for them. Kits cost $10 each but are provided free of charge to girls in villages who are also educated about menstruation, reproduction, and preventing pregnancy.
Your $10 donation goes toward providing 3 years of schooling for a young woman in Ghana. $100 helps ten girls stay in school for a combined total of 30 years. Learn how you can donate here.
DFG also provides opportunities for students and people to contribute their time by working with DFG in Ghana for short periods of time.
DFG Ghana was founded by Bernice Frimpong Ankrah and her husband Prince Ankrah who are tireless champions for BLANK.
