The main objective of this event is to raise awareness on the issue of menstrual hygiene management as a taboo topic and a barrier to girl’s education in Cameroon. The specific objectives include;
1. To create a platform where girls can share their experiences, challenges and perspectives on the challenges of menstrual hygiene management in rural communities
2. To provide information through presentations from WASH and SRH experts in Cameroon on related topics such as menstrual health, importance of girls education, teenage pregnancy etc.
3. To stop period poverty
