The collaboration is powered by Sincerëly Ghana Limited and BRAVE, founded by Muntari and Owusu respectively.

Some 1,000 sanitary pads provided by Sincerely Ghana Limited kicked off the project. Organizers say there are plans to provide a lot more pads to cater for the menstrual needs of underprivileged girls in society.

Plans to support the initiative include a roundtable talk with girls to better understand their needs with regards to menstrual hygiene and sexual reproductive health.

The overall objective of the initiative, according to a statement is to bring “to the fore the challenges most young girls face in dealing with the dynamics of their menstrual cycles.”
