GIVE GIRLS AN EDUCATION IN AFRICA
Did you know that less than 10% of girls in South Africa pass 8th grade and continue their education? The main reason to their dismissal is that they can't afford underwear nor menstrual products and are being bullied in school for it, so they drop out permanently. To prevent girls and women from being in poverty throughout their life, they need an education. We have created a system that will get girls back in school and, ultimately, increase the employment rate.
Girls dropout of school because they cannot afford menstrual products.
The primary reason of school dropout and unemployment for women is not having underwear or menstrual products. Moreover, young ladies are bullied and teased in school when their period occurs at an inopportune moment in school. The impact that has on a young lady is drastic, which automatically results in them dropping out of school and losing their self-worth.
Take action with GirlStuff.Period.
Our two major goals in GirlStuff.Period are to increase the education and employment rate for women in African communities we work in and support by 15% every year until we've reversed the drop out rate to single digits. By being educated, women in Africa can then understand health, nutrition, family planning and have the power to take charge of their own life. By giving women an education, MAWO will increase economic growth within African communities.
