As part of a Friends’ of Education Movement activities on Friday 07, 2018 before International Literacy Day, Saturday, September, 2018, I was happy to initiate a step forward program “Malkia” to ensure more sanitary pads are widely available in Korogwe Rural Schools’.
To commemorate this International Literacy Day 2018, there are a lot of reasons for this. If there’s a need for help in girls literacy, we have to think about their health and hygiene at school.
Each year September 8th marks UNESCO’s International Literacy day, raising awareness globally on the issues surrounding adult and child literacy.
The Malkia campaign aiming to keep girls in school, if a girl doesn’t have access to sanitary pads or a safe and clean place at school to change them, that becomes another reason to keep her home. She starts missing a few days (4 – 7) every month, she falls behind, and she may eventually drop out.
This project is important to health and development—not only for the girls but for their communities and countries.
International Literacy Day is a day to remind world leaders, influencers and the general public of the current status of adult literacy and learning.
We are happy to welcome you all and share some experiences you have;
