In Malawi, girls are said to miss about 50 days a year of school due to lack of menstrual sanitary products
In the rural areas, access to clean, comfortable and effective menstrual facilities is a challenge. This is because most of the households live under the poverty line hence families cannot be able to afford sanitary products.
This in turn leads to absenteeism during menstrual days.
The Care4girls Pads drive aims to distribute sanitary products to these needy girls in secondary schools
