Wisdom Dordoe’s and his NGO, Give Me Hope Foundation, are educating girls in Basic schools how to take care of themselves during menstruation.

“We need to let our girls know that whatever sanitary method they use while menstruating, must be hygienic and that they should not feel ashamed during their period,” the founder of Give Me Hope Foundation said.

Mr Dordoe said a young lady having her period especially for the first time, is a thing of pride as it initiates her into the next stage of development.

This informed his decision to take his campaign to some Junior High Schools (JHS) in the Greater Accra as well as the Ashanti regions.

Some of the beneficiary schools are Ordogonno JHS, Nsawan JHS and Presby JHS in Asante-Mampong in Kumasi.

Speaking after his visit to the schools he told JoyNews, it is time society embraced them and it is everybody’s business to teach them how to keep themselves well, stressing, it is not something the girls have to be ashamed of it.

“We need everybody to show support for it because it is important to health and nation-building. If we are talking about empowering a girl child through personal hygiene; it is not just about health but also about social development,” he said.

“Menstruation should not be something hidden or to be ashamed of, instead, the girls should be empowered with enough information and means to make their menstrual periods more hygienic and comfortable for them,” Mr Dordoe said.

According to him, if the men want to see their women succeed, it is time young girls’ hygiene becomes an issue of priority for them.

“It is common for women to talk about young lady’s hygiene but I want the men to come forward to fight for this for our young rights,” he said.

Some of the pupils who benefitted said it was an eye-opening experience for them and they got the opportunity to know their bodies better.

Mr Dordoe’s Foundation distributed sanitary pads and mathematical sets to the students.

Wisdom Dordoe is a banker and founder of Give Me Hope Foundation, an NGO established since 2013 which has been the voice for children and less privileged. He is also the country adviser for Naifa Naif Foundation.
