Investing in Girls Education in Africa

Investing in Girls Education in Africa (IGEA) is a non for profit organisation with a mission of delivering quality education to girls in rural parts of Africa. We have started our operation in Ghana with our first project, Menstruate and Educate.  We want to minimise any hinderance that may occur in the process of young girls receiving education. Very often, women and girls in rural parts of a country such as Ghana, do not have access to sanitary care. When governments address sanitation, they overlook gender specific demands and we want to address these issues. By distributing reusable, biodegradable sanitary napkins, we want to equip young girls to feel confident during menstruation. Our main goal is to reduce absenteeism and increase wellbeing in these communities. 

We provide a two fold solution that addresses social as well as environmental issues. Commercial sanitary napkins are expensive and harmful for the environment. With no substantial waste disposal methods, plastic sanitary napkins will lie in the vicinity for years and years together. The reusable, biodegradable sanitary napkins distributed along with a pair of knickers will equip a girl to feel strong for two years and merely costs  five pounds. 

If you want to be a part of an initiative that solves a social issue in an environmentally sustainable manner, donate now. 

A small 5 pound donation will make a girls life as easy as we have it for two years
