Sanitary Pad Programme
ChallengeAid wants to provide a year’s supply of sanitary pads to all of the girls attending our Schools of Hope.
Far too many girls miss school because they cannot afford sanitary products. At ChallengeAid, we want to do everything we can to ensure that every individual has access to education.
When we first started our School of Hope programme, approximately 60% of the attendees were male.
Since the introduction of our sanitary pad programme, approximately 60% of our pupils are female.
Our scheme has significantly lessened the embarrassment and social stigma that girls are faced with when they have no access to sanitary products.
