Edgar Chiukepo Phiri, School Girls Menstrual Hygiene Management Project

Date grant awarded: 04/30/2017

For many girls, menstruation is a significant factor causing absence from school. Our project aims to construct new restrooms, to increase the school completion rate among targeted girls supported by this project, and to reduce school absenteeism.

The organization came to know about the problem as a result of the study it conducted in selected primary schools to assess the knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) of learners on issues related to water, sanitation and hygiene in some schools in Karonga, Malawi.
