“We use Life Skills Games to address menstruation topics so that girls can be supported to handle challenges that they face during menstruation cycle. Our goal is to create a safe space where both girls and boys can obtain right information and openly discuss about menstruation issues’’.

Since 2019, JFD has managed to use Life Skills Games to address critical challenges that girls face during Menstruation including: 

  • Inadequate knowledge about menstruation. 
  • Taboos related to menstruation.  
  • Improper disposal of used sanitary materials. 
  • Lack of special and private rooms for girls within schools. 
  • Insufficient sanitary materials for girls at schools. 

Creating Safe Space, Supporting SDGs 3, 4 & 5, While Building Confidence To Girls!

In this program, JFD staff work with teachers, communities, and government using games to provide proper education on Menstrual Hygiene Management to primary school girls and boys. We believe by doing this we keep girls safe, well, and confident. Inclusion of boys into our programs helps the girls not to be ashamed, embarrassed, or humiliated during their menstrual periods. 

By the support of different stakeholders, we provide and demonstrate the usage of sanitary pads to schools to ensure girls have access to appropriate and safe sanitary materials during menstrual periods at school instead of using rags (cloths pieces), cotton and sponges! 

Our programs support good health and wellbeing (SDG 3) and gender equality (SDG 5) making sure girls get quality education (SDG 4). Through our Life Skills Games, we have been able to reduce absenteeism in schools during menstrual days which contributes to better academic performance for girls as well as reducing their exposure to health risks.

Our Impact

  • We have witnessed behavioural change in schools for both boys and girls through our Life Skills Games. 
  • We have constructed 8 special and private rooms for girls in 8 primary schools attached to the toilets. 
  • Trained 51 teachers and built their capacity and knowledge on menstrual issues. These teachers become multipliers to deliver the knowledge to girls and boys at their schools. 
  • More than 7,000 pupils have been trained on Menstrual Hygiene Management using Life Skills Games by the trained teachers.
