With the problem analysis, Maboshe Memorial Centre (MMC) is hoping to lobby for donor funding to conduct a 2 to 3 years project in the seven Primary Schools (Mukangu, Lukulo, Musalonga, Nakanyaa, Mawawa, Kannde and Namachaha Primary Schools) with the core aim of reducing menstrual hygiene challenges that menstruating girls in schools faces.
The survey on promoting sustainable Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) and Sanitation for menstruating girls in schools is a Maboshe Small Village Bank Fund (MSVBF) funded project. One of the major activities will be the construction of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) shelters as well as self-production of sanitary towels by Menstruating girls in schools.
