    There was a time in my 100 lvl in the university that I used cloth…( my Ankara scarf)…
    I felt bad.. The sch clinic gives out free condoms but can’t afford to give out a single pad…
    Why can’t sanitary pads can’t be given out free to female students in out primary, secondary and tertiary institutions….

    When i was in high school some people brought boxes of sanitary pads to my school. Guess what? We were so so happy, unfortunately the sch management never shared these pads to the students. Even if it’s reduced to 50naira in 🇳🇬 I’m sorry some people still won’t be able to afford it.
    Sanitary pads should be free and accessible.

    Recently in my local government CDS where I served as a corper, a health organization came to give us lecture. After the lecture guess what, they only share condoms. I wasn’t happy with this but what can I do
