Program Description:

One of our goals at AWW, Inc. is to provide and encourage a female perspective in academic, professional and community settings. Ideally all WASH efforts should include a comprehensive approach that puts female safety, sexual health, and menstrual hygiene management (MHM) at the top of the list. Education, functioning accessible water, safe sanitation facilities and access to sanitary items is critically important in enabling girls to participate in society. It is fundamental to the dignity and wellbeing of women and girls that they have understanding and access to basic hygiene, sanitation and reproductive health services, all of which are human rights. However, the truth of the matter is that menstrual hygiene has been routinely ignored by many in the male dominated water, health and education sectors. Worthy Practices is a comprehensive program aimed at the issues surrounding MHM (menstrual hygiene management) including human rights.
