UNICEF’s Menstrual Banks: UN’s Children’s Agency To Establish Menstrual Banks in Nigerian Schools

The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) has said it will establish menstrual banks in Nigerian Schools in Eduonwheels’ today’s School Girls & Personal-Hygiene Health Education News blog of 7 March 2023.

According to the School Girls News report, The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), Bauchi Field Office, has said that all is set to establish menstrual banks in some schools in Northern Nigeria.

Mrs. Mairama Dikwa, the UNICEF Education Specialist, told the New Agency of Nigerian (NAN) in Bauchi on Saturday, that the establishment would begin in November across all the schools with Girls Enrollment Project 3 (GEP3).

 

The Menstrual Banks Project is Aimed at Keeping the Girls in School When They Are Menstruating

She has said that the project would be carried out under the Menstrual Hygiene Management of the agency’s Girl Education Project which was introduced to support girls and ensure that they remained in school.

According to Mrs. Mairama Dikwa, the gesture is an ideal one for encouraging and improving Girls’ Enrollment in schools as well as ensuring that the girls didn’t break the circle of learning.

She has explained that UNICEF is aiming to make sure that each school where we are intervening has a menstrual bank where some of the pads would be stored and the girls can have access whenever they are menstruating – a move that will enable the girls to use menstrual pads while in school.

She added that most times when the girls menstruate, they stayed off school because they didn’t have what it takes to take care of themselves, as well as in some homes because their parents could not afford sanitary pads.

The UNICEF Education Specialist has further added that UNICEF was working to see how it could support the girls with the usage of reusable pads as well as engage their mothers on how to produce the pads so as to be able to contribute their quotas in their children’s menstrual hygiene and education consistency.

The education specialist revealed that the project, at its pilot stage, would commence in 50 Junior Secondary Schools in each of the six states of Sokoto, Zamfara, Niger, Kano, Bauchi and Katsina where the UNICEF GEP 3 project was implemented.
