Pamoza Tingakwaniska donates reusable sanitary pads

Posted in

Speaking in an interview after the donation, Programs Manager for the organization, Gomezgani Mhango said the organization thought of making the donation after having observed that there are some students that are financially challenged to manage menstrual hygiene.

“Chisenga CDSS is amongst the schools we are working with in wanangwa wane project, so because it is located away from town, it is tough for students to easily access sanitary pads, so we thought it wise to render help with reusable sanitary pads.

“These reusable sanitary pads will help the students to save money as well as the environment because other sanitary pads are being poorly disposed of thereby affecting the environment,” She said.

“I am very thankful for this donation, it has come at in good time because I have been facing challenges to access these pads so now I will be able to manage my situations well while conserving the environment,” she said.

On her part, the matron for wanangwa wane project who is also a teacher at the school hailed the organization saying the donation will lessen the menstrual challenges that financially challenged female students were facing.

The organization also held a session where female students were taught on menstrual hygiene as they continue with education.

The organization is implementing wanangwa wane project with funding from Breuckmann Foundation and the German Government Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation Development.
