Give To Life Charity Organisation, a not-for-profit organisation based in the Greater Accra region but with a presence in the Upper East Region has donated over 400 sanitary pads to girls in selected schools in the Upper East Region.

The 400 sanitary pads cost the organisation some Ghc3,200. The 5 schools are Zono Sore Primary and Gambibgo Community Day Senior High School in the Bolgatanga East District as well as Yua Junior High School and Aniasoore Junior High School in the Kassena Nankana Municipality.

The Regional Project Coordinator for Give To Life Charity Organisation, Paulina Azaare explained that the donation formed part of the organisation’s attempt to prevent girls from engaging in transactional sex.

“Give To Life Charity Organisation decided to donate sanitary pads in the selected districts to, momentarily, ease the financial burden on parents. The poverty rate in the region, therefore, the majority of young girls fall prey to men. They are forced to do things with men in exchange for financial support.”

“As part of our one-year anniversary and also as part of our CSR, we decided to donate pads for girls in poor community schools in the Upper East Region to help them keep themselves neat and comfortable during that time of the month so as not to sway them into the hands of men who will end up taking advantage of them. We also took the time to educate the girls on the need for abstinence.”

Give to Life Charity Organisation provides educational support for orphans and needy children, Girl-Child education, entrepreneurial skill programmes through apprenticeships like sewing, hairdressing, coconut oil extraction, soap making, bread-baking, pastries, kente weaving, beads & wedding accessories, women empowerment, community developmental projects.

The acquisition of these skills serves as preparation for various opportunities and provides employment.
