    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    It is devastating that some women around the world are experiencing extreme poverty, and an area close to our hearts is Ghana. When we learnt that girls were dropping out of school when they started their periods because they couldn't afford sanitary products it broke our hearts. We are missing out on future teachers, doctors and leaders; and we want to do something to change this and remove the stigma surrounding menstruation.

    This project seeks to address the issue of young girls in Ghana missing school because they are menstruating and do not have access to menstrual provisions.

    We will work with an existing charity in Ghana to provide support and dignity for young girls while they are menstruating, encouraging them to stay in school. Alongside this we will aim to administer professional female health and contraceptive advice and distribute hygiene products, and affordable disposable pads.

    Under the guidance of the Charity we will distribute the products and run workshops for girls to encourage their attendance at school. We also aim to create an awareness of female hygiene and contraception.

    We aim to raise £5000 to support the project. The money raised will be spent on travel to Ghana for a teacher, a peer educator, a reverend and a health worker. We aim to invest in Ghana, by purchasing Ghanaian sanitary and contraceptive products, for Ghanaian girls. We will process funds through a charity and have a clear audit trail.

    A group of four women will go to Ghana in April 2019 to work in Madina, which in 2016 was ranked the most deprived region in Ghana.
