Mahama Special Aide Donates Sanitary Pads To Tamale Girls SHS
Joyce Bawah Mogtari, the Special Aide to former President John Dramani Mahama, recently presented a five-month supply of sanitary pads to 622 first-year students of Tamale Girls Senior High School on behalf of the Rosa Foundation-Africa.
The main goal of this initiative is to improve menstrual hygiene and decrease the risk of infection among young schoolgirls.
It is well-known that some girls drop out of school due to the lack of access to menstrual products.
In response, Mrs. Mogtari and her family foundation have made a commitment to support these 622 students throughout their three-year program.
Mrs. Mogtari stressed the significance of menstrual products for young girls’ education and highlighted how such donations can alleviate the financial burden on families.
She encouraged the students to be disciplined, dedicated to their studies, and well-prepared for the future of Ghana and Africa.
The Rosa Foundation
The Rosa Foundation-Africa was established with the aim of empowering and promoting the girl child, striving to provide support to those who may not be able to do so for themselves.
Over the years, the foundation has contributed furniture to schools in the Upper West, Eastern, and Savanna Regions and is now donating sanitary supplies to girls in senior high schools.
Supported by movie producer and actress Kafui Danku, along with officials of the Rosa Foundation-Africa and school management.
Mrs. Mogtari expressed her belief that the sanitary pads initiative will have a positive impact on the health, education, and well-being of countless girls and women in Ghana.
