Several school girls from Kpor Town Public School, Margibi County, along the Roberts International Highway, have received menstrual hygiene kits from Our Children Future, in collaboration with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated.
The menstrual hygiene kits are meant to help girls and women during time of menstruation.
Menstruation is a process in a woman when discharging blood and other material from the lining of the uterus at interval of about one lunar month from puberty until menopause, except during pregnancy.
Our Children Future (OCF) has been providing training to school-going girls across the country on the use of the reusable handmade hygiene kits.
This group is also into healthcare programs, education, and empowerment.
Speaking during the recent distribution of the seventy- three (73) menstrual hygiene kits package to the Kpor Town Community at the Kpor Town Public School, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Our Children Future, Josephine K. Barclay, noted that her organization’s distribution is part of the regular activities carried out by OCF and its partner, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
She said after every six months her group provides reusable handmade hygiene kits to school-going girls.
According to her, the objective is to keep girls/women in school during their menstrual period.
In rural Liberia, it is said that many school-going girls drop out of school during menstruation.
The girls from the Kpor Town Public School expressed thanks and appreciation to Our Children Future and its partner, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
Several schools in rural Liberia are expected to receive packages of reusable handmade hygiene kits from OCF in collaboration with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
