“We came to Afigya Kwabre North to empower the female students to enlighten them on how to take care of themselves on personal hygiene before, during and after their period.

He asked government to reduce taxes on sanitary pad and make it free for teenage students.

 

Giving her appreciation, the Afigya Kwabre North Education Director, Madam Ellen Gyekyiwaa Essun said “It’s nice for them to reach out to us because most people do not have this awareness but hopefully with them being here today, I’m sure most people would have learnt one or two things from it.”
