End Period Poverty in Ghana

The work contributes. October 12-17 we continue the work to help #endperiodpoverty.


SuperGirl Ambassador Amina Anekwe will lead this initiative. We will visit four schools and donate 2500 sanitary napkins.


Each girl will get up to 3 months supply of resources including a book from SuperGirl Marley Dias’ #1000blackgirlbooks campaign.


Mrs. Alberta Ekar made each of the 500 reusable bags for the girls.



Also joining the trip is GrassROOTS President Dr. Janice Johnson Dias and board member Lisa Maxwell.


This work is done in partnership with The Rotary Club of Accra-Airport City with support from Proctor and Gamble.
