The Semanhyiya Project: A Sustainable Venture to Alleviate Period Poverty in Senase, Ghana
Lack of sanitary products prevent many girls from attending school in the developing world. After repeated absences, many girls drop out of school permanently. The Semanhyiya Project, founded by SAS alumni Reeva Kedia, Lizzie Mafrici, and Teagan Conroy, working alongside the GodFreds Foundation, is addressing this in Senase, Ghana at the Semanhyiya American School. Through a self-sufficient business model, teenagers will produce reusable sanitary pads to be donated to girls within the school. Excess pads will be sold to local shopkeepers to purchase additional material. Reusable cloth pads will last 3-5 years with proper care. Join us for a panel discussion with the group’s co-founders, led by Lifelong Learner Alumna Elaine Church.
