Due to the cost of menstrual supplies,
period poverty increases the socioeconomic vulnerability that girls experience.
1 in 10 girls in Africa miss school because they don't have access to menstrual
products and period-friendly sanitation facilities (bathrooms). Period poverty
can lead to physical health problems. Without access to effective resources,
girls may resort to using dirty rags or leaves during their menstrual cycle.
This can cause infections and other medical problems, especially in countries
where female genital mutilation (FGM) still takes place. Today, millions of
women and girls around the world are stigmatized, excluded, and discriminated
against simply because they menstruate. Sigma Gamma Rho stands in favor of
helping women across the world. International Second Grand Anti-Basileus,
Samaria Robinson, is asking for your help to donate funds to her initiative.
Period products will be purchased, packaged, and donated to young ladies in
Ghana during the "Birthright Journey to Ghana" experience.
International Second Grand Anti-Basileus, Samaria Robinson, is asking for your help to donate funds to this initiative. I ask that each undergraduate soror contributes at least $2.22 and each undergraduate chapter donates at least $19.22.
The chapter that donates the most will receive recognition and a special gift. The region that donates the most will receive recognition at their regional conference in 2024. Thank you in advance for your support. Please be sure to share this, donate to be a part of this initiative, and let's continue to raise awareness to end period poverty.
