For the first time in my life, it occurred to me that the price of disposable pad have made it a luxury.
The thought of the girls whose parents receive less than N20,000 monthly.
The thought of the girls who barely feed twice a day.
The thought of the girls who miss classes during their menstrual cycle due to lack of access to the N450 disposable pads.
The thought of girls who engage in illicit activities just to raise money to purchase disposable pads.
The thought girls who resort to the use of unhealthy materials to fix their period poverty.
The need to proffer sustainable solution to period poverty.
The need to provide hygienic, eco-friendly and long-lasting succor for the girl child.
Menstruation is not a problem; we all must come together to end period poverty.
