school women Girls International donates

TP Women International, a Non-governmental Orgnaisation has donated 140 sanitary pads and panties to pupils of the Adasewase Methodist and District Authority Junior Secondary School in the Atiwa District of the Eastern Region.

Ms Marian Cudjoe, Chief Executive Officer of TP Women International said the donation was part of the activities aimed at educating and empowering adolescent girls in the Atiwa District of the Eastern Region.

She said over 68 girls benefited from the gesture and it was to help promote menstrual hygiene among the girls in the community and prevent teenage pregnancy. Ms Cudjoe in an interview with the Ghana News Agency explained that in one of the schools, there were no female teachers to support these adolescents when the need arose and the girls reported that they “feel uncomfortable to attend classes during their menstrual cycle periods”.

She expressed concern about the plight of girls in such basic schools across the country, where there were no female teachers.   She said several complaints had been made to officials of Ghana Education Service District directorate to assign some female teachers to the school to assist the girls anytime the need arose.

She noted that the non-availability of sanitary pad made girls feel uncomfortable when they were in their menstrual cycle.Ms Cudjoe also urged parents to provide sex education to their adolescents and create a good parent-child-relationship for the growth and development of their children.

She said the focus of TP Women International included health education, female empowerment, support to the needy in society and reducing negative social vices. Mr Collins Sarpong, Head Teacher of Adasewase D/A Junior High School expressed gratitude to management of the organisation for supporting the girls and encouraged other NGOs as well as civil society organisations to support the school.
