Leading Ladies
Our founder, Wendy Laryea, recently had an open conversation with some girls on menstrual hygiene and the need for them to take up leadership roles. This was at an event organised by Leading Ladies’ Network.
Adentan Community School
Education about menstruation helps to dispel myths. If more schools and parents will have open conversations about menstruation, our society will be better placed. To help young ones better understand this natural “normal” phenomenon, we partnered Kings Foundation Gh. to discuss Menstrual Hygiene Management with the pupils of Adentan Community Schools.
Saint Peters Anglican School

According to Michael Richards, Lecturer in Applied Health and Social Care at Edge Hill University in an article published on, schools need to be more open about the importance of menstruation and they need to be more sympathetic towards the stigma girls face. He is of the view for a start, schools should provide resources and information that girls can access. This will help them understand – rather than feel scared and fearful – what is happening to their bodies during puberty. At Inspire to Rise we second this and know this is one step towards taking the taboo out of menstruation, because to achieve gender equality on this issue, girls need to feel able to talk about their periods and challenge the discrimination that is associated with menstruation and developing girls bodies. And boys can play a big role in this – if they also get the right support and resources.

We believe commemorating the day was critical in demystifying myths surrounding menstruation. The interactive session schooled pupils on menstruation and effects of premarital sex. Dr. Elvis Kuma Forson, a medical doctor at the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department of Lekma Hospital spoke about measures females can adopt during their menstruation.Sanitary pads were also distributed to the girls who participated in the session.
