Kind-Heart Aid Foundation, a non-profit organisation
operating in the Savannah Region has on Friday,15th December, 2023 donated sanitary pads and
sensitized adolescent girls of Nyange D/A Primary school on Menstrual Health and Management.
Speaking to Bole based Nkilgi fm, Mr. Kassim Abdulai Nelly, the community liaison officer of the foundation on behalf of the Project Manager Mr Emmanuel Safo Sadari, gave a brief remark on the background of Kind-Heart Aid Foundation. According to Mr. Kassim, Kind-Heart Aid Foundation is a community based non-governmental organisation dedicated to empowering individuals to escape poverty by bringing together a diverse group of international partners to tackle the most pressing global issues in vulnerable societies.
He added that the foundation’s first project was in Bole, with the Girls Model School being the first beneficiary with the “Girls in ICT” program.
Kassim Abdulai Nelly said the foundation was in Nyange to educate and sensitize young adolescent girls on the importance of menstrual hygiene and the use of sanitary pads to help them when they are in their periods.
He as well said, the education is very important because, most of the young girls feel inferior when they are in this situation and sometimes miss precious learning hours in School hence the foundation’s decision to adopt the school under its health programme and to support the girl child with sanitary pads to augment them during their periods.
Abdulai Kassim Nellybdisclosed that Kind-Heart Aid Foundation will roll out other initiatives under its environmental sustainability and human capital development programmes, respectively, in due course.
Acknowledging the good works of the foundation, the Health Madam and a teacher of the Nyange D/A Primary school, Miss Sakina Issah Warris said, she was excited and grateful to Kind-Heart Aid Foundation for the sensitization exercise to the young teenage girls of the School and equally appreciates the donations of Sanitary pads to the girls which has always been a headache to her when they ask her for help and sometimes she can’t afford because of their numbers.
The Headteacher of the Nyange D/A School Mr Saaka David wished the foundation all the best in their future endeavours and asked them to still come back to Nyange anytime to continue their good work because it will enhance the academic performance of the girl child since they will no longer miss teaching hours because of menstrual issues.
A student and beneficiary of the exercise, Anita Yimaatey thanked the Kind-Heart Aid Foundation for supporting them with sanitary pads and also sensitizing them on Menstrual Health Management. Equally, she thanked the stakeholders who made it possible to organise the program.
