The Peace Foundation has advocated for free pads for vulnerable women in the country to reduce the effects of covid-19. The Founder, Ms. Peace David Told Peoplereporters that a scary percentage of young ladies find it difficult to buy pad during menstruation, hence campaign for 1 pad 1 girl. Miss David also stressed the need for parents to talk to their teenagers about menstruation so as when the period comes, they are already knowledgeable about that and can take care of themselves.
She said the Foundation is seeking collaborations to empower young people targeting less privilege and abuse in the Nasarawa state and Nigeria in general.
“PEACE FOUNDATION is specifically targeting the less privileged oppressed and abused persons. The Foundation is empowering and enrolling children of school age in different schools across the state is a divine call I have taken upon myself.
Aside from that, we are looking for partners who have similar interests. Peace Foundation believed that Until all experience love for free from pure heart, that undiluted love from the very heart of God. We reach out to those at the grass level, demonstrate love, and create peace to the troubled hearts.
The Foundation planned to embark on outreach to primary school in April 2020, but due to the pandemic, we couldn’t and so I decided to embark on 1 girl 1 pad. This includes gathering teenagers, talk to them about the menstrual cycle, and how to take care of themselves before, during, and after the period. Their self-esteem, especially now that the cases of rape are alarming today in our society.
“We would have a heart to heart talk, and you know we can’t talk about menstruation and allow them to go, since things are a bit hard during the pandemic. Money to afford pad is something else.
“so we intend to distribute pads for 50 teenagers, and some chops too
