Because most rural and semi-urban girls in Nigeria are not properly educated or unaware of adolescence stage; when they starts their menstrual period they cannot go to school because they lack access to sanitary pads and menstrual hygiene education. The lack of proper information and lack of access to sanitary pads bereave our girls of their education through diseases, unwanted pregnancies, early marriage and finally drop out of school which makes them continue in the same circle with their parents.
GreenPad Concepts harness the potential of Nigeria school girls through sensitization and counseling programme on puberty stage, menstruation and menstrual hygiene. For rural and semi-urban school girls in Nigeria, GreenPad Concepts helps keep them in class during their menstrual period to get education, better than missing 4 – 5 classes a month and later drop out of school. We educate school girls on puberty stage, menstruation and menstrual hygiene with our sensitization programme and counselling and we manufacture bio-degradable, low-cost and accessible sanitary pads as oppose using unhygienic materials and expensive products.
