The project educates girls, helps them with their changing bodies and provides them with a menstrual cup. The project consists of four one hour sessions where girls get sexual and health education, and they can ask whatever questions they have in mind. The biggest problem for school girls in Congo DR is the lack of proper sanitary protection. Most girls miss one week per every month because of their periods, and eventually they will drop out from school earlier than boys.
Therefore CSR Solutions DRC have started up a project with the Lunette Menstrual Health Management package. Basically the project consist of two components
- Lunette menstrual cup
- Education and awareness raising on sexual rights, reproductive health, abuse and sexual violence
The overall aim of the project is to keep girls at school and teach them to understand and respect their own bodies better.
