P&G, WARIF support puberty education in schools
In its commitment to address issues affecting girls’ confidence and empowerment, leading consumer goods company, Procter & Gamble (P&G) Nigeria partnered with the Women at Risk International Foundation (WARIF) to facilitate the educational programmes (WARIF Educational School Program – WESP) around gender-based violence, helping girls build their confidence while supporting the organisation with the acquisition of personal protective equipment (PPE) for WARIF’s frontline healthcare, which supports its “protect our heroes” interventions while promoting both its Education and Gender Equality Citizenship Pillars.
The partnership is driven by P&G Employees through P&G Employee COVID-19 Support Fund, where employees made voluntary contributions to sponsor identified NGO (WARIF) as part of giving back to the community. P&G as an organisation matched 100% of total Employee contributions to reiterate its corporate commitment to Education and Gender Equality Citizenship Pillars. The mandated lockdown in 2020 and stay at home directive due to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in increased number of cases of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) as well as child abuse cases reported to WARIF as more women and children were in quarantine with their abusers. The WESP Initiative, which started on March 10 at Oregun High School, Lagos, was a four-week programme themed “Identifying the Signs and Preventing School-Related Gender-Based Violence.”
The programme included P&G’s “Always Menstrual Hygiene Session.”
Speaking on the initiative, Mrs. Temitope Iluyemi, P&G senior director for Africa, Global Government Relations & Public Policy, reiterated P&G’s dedication to gender-based issues. She said: “At P&G, we are always inspired by initiatives like this. Beyond this, we have a target to educate more than 50,000 adolescent girls on puberty and menstrual hygiene over the next three years in Nigeria through our Always Keeping Girls in School (AKGIS) program which will also provide a year supply of sanitary pads so that they can commit to their education and their future.”
