Lilian’s elder sister, whom she was staying with, told her to use rags because she could not afford to buy her sanitary pads every month and also pay her school fees.
HAFAI’s work has been transformative for many women and girls in Nigeria. However, a lot of girls still stay out of school because they don’t have what they need to manage their menstruation. This amounts to days of lost school, work, and opportunity. We can change that, together.
HAFAI: providing women’s education in Nigeria
Nigeria is one of the most impoverished countries in the world, and the demographic that is affected the most by poverty is women and young girls. Often they are refused basic education, they lack access to proper medical care and sanitation, and they are forced into early marriages. The Heath Aid for All Initiative is seeking to change this situation. With your help, we can make the world a better place for everyone by promoting girls’ education in Nigeria.
The primary health education priorities we have
Our organization for children’s education in Nigeria is dedicated to the following:
Educating women and girls
Education is the best way to empower women socially and economically. Women who stay in school are less likely to be forced into marriage and they are more likely to live happier and healthier lives.
Increasing sanitation and decreasing disease
The occurrence of many communicable diseases can be reduced by adopting regular hygiene practices that people in the West and other parts of the world find common. Our organization is dedicated to ensuring all people have access to clean water and sanitation facilities.
Ending female genital mutilation
Genital mutilation is a painful process inflicted on girls between the ages of four and twelve where parts of the vagina are cut away by a razor blade. These procedures are often done in unsanitary conditions, and can lead to deadly health complications.
Treating and preventing breast cancer
Breast cancer affects women everywhere, and it is our goal to increase awareness about this disease so that women can get the treatment to which they have a right.
Support female education in Nigeria today
Life in Nigeria is intolerable for many women and girls, but together we can make a difference to people’s lives. If you make a donation to HAFAI, we can use your charitable gift to improve conditions for girls in Nigeria. Empowering women is a difficult task, but challenges exist so they can be overcome.
