On Saturday, May 28th, Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Chad and the community at Fourkouloum site in Lake Chad celebrated Menstrual Hygiene Day to continue raising awareness on the importance of MHM for inclusive and quality education.
The event is funded by Entreculturas, through the Luz de las Niñas (LdN) campaign. The Girls’ Club members, supported by ECW and UNICEF, were the main participants of the different activities, performing dances, reading the children’s book “Afaf and the Golden Egg” (by JRS-Entreculturas on girls’ empowerment) and performing theatre plays on forced marriages and menstrual hygiene management (MHM).
