iHelp Africa is a Ghanaian voluntary, non-governmental and non-profit organization working in rural Ghana to create an enabling environment to vulnerable individuals, provide avenues for children in rural and deprived communities to attain success, serve as a platform to re-direct the future of adolescent mothers and young boys who are out of school and offer support to women to develop themselves economically through skills training.
The purpose of the “One girl, one box” project is to help provide teenage girls in deprived communities with sanitary pads in order to reduce absenteeism in schools. Access to pads means many of these young women will stay healthy and stay in school. Continuing their education ensures a brighter future for their whole family. Young women’s education is often the springboard for the entire family to break out of poverty.
Our target is to constantly provide 2000 girls in rural schools with sanitary pads, we currently have a data base of 615 girls we constantly provide pads to each month in the Volta region of Ghana. In Ghana 95% of girls have reported missing school due to menstruation. With many people experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic, we have ensured that our girls do not experience the impact of period.
"Basket for pads". For every Bolga basket purchase in this shop, you will provide more sanitary pads for deprived schoolgirls in Ghana.
