MHHE session in Cumilla

For every year a girl stays in school, her future income increases by 10%-20%. A woman spends 70% of her income in her family. Due to the inability to effectively manage menstruation school girls in Bangladesh skip school or drop out of school entirely due to a lack of proper menstrual product and poor sanitation. Shaathi in partnership with Volunteer for Bangladesh ( VBD ) Cumilla on November 11, 2021 distributed its reusable pads to schoolgirls in PDB High School and Hazi Akram Uddin High School in Jangalia, Cumilla so girls can attend classes without shame and create a future for themselves. The event included an interactive session on menstrual health and hygiene education (MHHE)to educate and create awareness about menstrual health & hygiene.
