Iyanu Reusable Pad Empowerment Project (IRPEP) for girls in Ogun State
Approximately 1.2 billion women across the world do not have sufficient access to these menstruation sanitation products due to poverty, which typically leads to unhygienic practices, like using rough newspapers or cow dungs covered with old cloth in place of pads.
Also, Nigeria places a heavy tax on menstrual products, with a pack of pads costing around 495 naira. People who are facing extreme poverty, approximately 44 per cent of the population, make less than N609 per day.
Iyanu Reusable Pad Empowerment Project (IRPEP), therefore, focuses on eradicating ‘menstruation period’ poverty amongst girls by distributing 400 reusable pads to 200 girls, this will last them for more than 2 years if properly maintained.
This project will take place in three rural communities in Ogun State between July 8-11, 2021.
