Reusable sanitary pads

Reusable sanitary pads

Great is the future of women and girls if only our girls stay in school to learn. After our research on women’s knowledge in sexual reproductive health education and pregnancies, we realized that some girls stay away from school because of a lack of access to Sanitary pads while others travel to urban cities to do street hawking and end up to going back to school while others become teenage mothers. The future of our women should not be jeopardised because of a basic lack of access to sanitary pads. It’s been our vision to provide for girls, so they do not miss out on their education. 


In 2018, ASIGE went through comprehensive training and certification from Days for Girls Ghana and New York Unadilla and equipment support from Americans Serving Abroad Project to establish and reusable sanitary pad center.  ASIGE is gold certified to provide reusable sanitary pad locally and internationally. In a matter of 5 years, 5,000 reusable sanitary pads have been produced and distributed for rural girls in Ghana and 10,000 boys and girls are covered on menstrual education.

3.5 Girls Education


Upper East Region is one of the regions in Ghana with low level of education among women. Just 2% of females are able to make it to tertiary level after high school. Majority drop out at junior and senior high school due poverty and teenage pregnancies. ASIGE continue to identify and send back to school, girls that have dropped out due to teenage pregnancy or poverty. ASIGE had sent 9 teenage mothers back to school, for which some have completed high school and awaiting to proceed to the Universities. ASIGE currently support two of those completed who are now in the University offering fashion and medicine at Bolgatanga Technical University and University for Development studies Ghana.

Volunteers just have the heart; they don’t always have the time. We are committed to investing in the next generation of young people and women and girls to create a brighter future.
