Education

Women Economic Empowerment Africa - #Icare

Main aim of the charity

Period poverty is one of the main reasons why millions of young girls drop out of school for the lack of access to sanitary products. This cause main goal is to eradicate Period poverty in order to empower women through education.

How the employee got involved and why

I do it because girl's education is very important to me and I know that I was privileged enough to have a mother who believed in educating girls and did everything she could to send me to school. I want to pay it forward by playing my part. I started working on this project in 2021. 7 out of 10 women in Ethiopia do not have access to sanitary pads, as a result young girls in villages and remote parts of Ethiopia are forced to drop out of school because they miss school during their period.

What work does the employee do for charity

I work with an organization to create awareness and raise funds to keep young girls in School in Ethiopia by providing Sanitary products.
