Many girls stay home from school when they have their period and miss out on their education.
Girls most commonly dropout of school after Grade 6 because there aren’t private latrines where they can relieve themselves safely or manage their menstrual cycle. When girls stay in school longer, they are more likely to start their own businesses and, in turn, it has been shown that women are more likely to reinvest profits from business to promote their family’s health, children’s education, and future business growth.
For every year a girl spends in school she raises her family income by up to 20%.
Lack of education for girls contributes to early marriage, higher birth rates, and lower income.
BlessedGirls Burundi Mentors are making a difference! Our team served, trained and provided panties & sanitary pads to over 100 girls in Gatumba at the Thanksgiving Church (Pastor Immanuel). Thanks to generous donations all girls were provided panties, pads, educated on how to use the pads and care for their bodies during their cycle.
Together we can make the world a better place and help every girl know she is BLESSED!
Be Bold Be You Be Blessed
