Our Approach

What We Learned

WEAW’s campaign –

The sanitation and hygiene needs for everyone, at all times, need to be considered if programmers and policies are to be equitable for all. For the disabled, relatively small adjustments to water and sanitation services can ensure that their needs are not overlooked, improving the dignity, health, and overall quality of life of those already disadvantaged.
All participants in our studies were eager to discuss menstruation.
They asked a wide range of questions about sexual and reproductive health and early pregnancy.
Highlighting the need for comprehensive sexuality education.
It is especially imperative that adolescent girls be able to access correct, basic information before they have their first period.

What we are going to do

WEAW will continue to distribute free PAD BANKS throughout the country and will give trainings on menstrual hygiene and develop capacity for outreach and awareness campaigns to demystify menstruation among women and men. It is essential to raise awareness among religious, community and other leaders to support the participation of women and girls in decision that concerns their lives, and it is also important to work with women and men as well as girls and boys.
While some people are still reluctant to discuss it, menstrual hygiene has proven to be a powerful entry point to raise broader issues around such as –

  • Gender equalit.
  • Women’s and girls’ empowerment.
  • Sexuality education.
  • Sexual and reproductive health and rights.
  • Child marriage, fistula and female genital mutilation.
