Doom Mavis Ikyaator – Red is My Right

Date grant awarded: April 19, 2019

Red is My Right is an initiative created by Doom Ikyaator, a development practitioner from Nigeria who is passionate about the health and rights of the girl child. The aim of this work is to educate adolescent school girls on proper menstrual hygiene, especially within the school environment, in order to boost their self-confidence and ensure that nothing hinders them from achieving their full potential. Through this initiative, adolescent school girls of Government Secondary School Magwan-Kano, Nigeria will be equipped with skills on how to self-produce reusable, environmentally friendly and cost effective sanitary pads. Additionally, safe spaces will be created for them through the establishment of school clubs so they can freely share information on their menstruation.
