17 Years US-Based Ghanaian Girl Donates Sanitary Pads To Girls At Deaf & Blind Schools

A seventeen-year-old Ghanaian high school donor based in Kansas in the United States of America Akosua Kyerewaa Danso, who donated laptops to blind students last year during the Covid-19, has called for investment in menstrual hygiene health.

She was of the view that good and safe menstrual health and hygiene contributes to the overall health and well-being of women and girls, therefore, it would be prudent to make investments to support girls to practice good menstrual hygiene.

She made the call at a recent ceremony to mark the World Menstrual Hygiene Day and donations to female students at the School for the Deaf at Adjei Kojo and the Wa School for the Blind.

She donated sanitary pads to students at the schools to mark her 17th birthday celebration.

According to her, throughout her life, she had received support from friends, family, school, and scholarships from benevolent people in her community and thought it was time for her to pay back by supporting others who might need help.

Miss Kyerewaa Danso explained that she wanted to help girls of her age because she knew feminine hygiene was important in the lives of girls.

She added that the goal is to make a positive impact on the lives of other young people, so they would also learn to give back and make an impact in their communities.
