Welcome to 2017!
Have you made any resolutions for yourself this year? Our team has set several goals for ourselves, as a way of keeping us motivated. This year, we want to reach 12,000 women and girls with the Feminine Health Empowerment Program across East Africa, and conduct important research about menstrual health and hygiene. One of our main goals is to find new and innovative ways of delivering menstrual health education across East Africa. This includes busting myths, breaking taboos and starting an important conversation about women’s health.
Another goal of ours is the launch of our brand new YouTube channel! We will be sharing videos from the field to show you our work and impact in East Africa, as well as short videos to introduce our team to you.
As part of our New Years resolution to deliver menstrual health education, our Tanzanian team will be sharing what they knew about menstruation before they started working for Femme. This is the first video in a series of Q&A videos with our team based in Moshi.
What did you know about menstruation before your first period?
