The Goal: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
Healthcare is a basic human right. A lack of education around Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) and sexual health is a key issue faced by girls in the developing world with many lacking access to basic, safe sanitary products.
WildHearts will continue to support good health and well-being with the distribution of reusable sanitary pads to school girls, tackling health issues related to poor access to MHM.
The distribution of reusable pads will be supported by a tried and tested MHM and sexual health education programme, ensuring girls are equipped with the knowledge and materials they need to safely manage menstruation.
Furthermore, WildHearts microfinance programme ensures clients can afford nutritious food, medicine and essential healthcare.
