Queen Israel is the Project Lead behind Menstruation Management Education for Adolescent girls in Ebonyi State, Nigeria. This Project delivers comprehensive menstruation management information, reproductive health, HIV/AIDS Prevention and life building skills to adolescent girls in secondary schools in Ebonyi State, Nigeria. By running adolescent girl clubs in secondary schools, girls are enabled to have a safe space to learn, share challenges, and exchange ideas.

The Project aims to boost girls confidence about their bodies by ensuring that they can manage their bodies effectively, reduce unintended pregnancies, reduce the rate of school absenteeism, and break down reproductive taboos by encouraging girls to feel confident to speak about menstruation and other reproductive health topics with their peers.
