HARAPAN PROJECT DISTRIBUTION FOR THE REMOTE AREAS ON SUMBAWA ISLAND

INTRODUCTION:

During this course 2017/2018, and thanks to the collaboration with the Australian NGO Priscilla Hall Memorial Foundation, and the NGO Days For Girls International, we have run the present program in order to increases access to menstrual care and sexual and menstrual education.

The present program consists of the delivery of kits including underwear and reusable organic panty liners.  We have also provided sexual and menstrual education, and instructions of the use of the kits.

DAYS FOR GIRLS PROGRAM:

We have delivered 150 kits in 3 villages of the district of Hu’u in the island of Sumbawa (Indonesia).

Each kit included:

  • 2 Days for Girls Shields
  • 8 Days for Girls Liners
  • 2 panties
  • 1 small soap
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 menstrual chart & pictorial instruction
  • 2 gallon-size freezer bags
  • 1 Days for Girls Drawstring Bag

The delivery of the kits was accompanied with education regarding menstruation, reproductive system and menstruation cycle. Women had the opportunity to share and discuss their daily problems regarding menstrual and sexual matters.

CONCLUSIONS:

Reusable menstrual pads offer girls and women a safe, effective, and sustainable solution to managing their menstruation each month.

We can conclude that, with the present program, we have been able to change the daily life of 150 women in the district of Hu’u, making their lives easier.
