Ms Eunice Aba Sackey, a philanthropist and women humanitarian advocate has urged student to emulate the gesture of giving.

She said the act would help them become prominent and attract more blessings from the most high God himself.

“ Always remember to support your peers when you have two and they have none”

Ms Sackey advised the students when her foundation donated items worth thousands of cedis to some under-deprived schools in the Cape Coast North Constituency.

The items included sanitary pads, hand washing soaps, mathematical sets, drinks, biscuits and other to aid effective teaching and learning in school.

The donation formed part of her school girl child project which was aimed at educating the girl child on basic menstral hygiene processes to make schooling attractive to them.

On the sidelines of keeping themselves clean during menstral period, Ms Sackey who doubles as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nice Shades Collection said research had shown that, young girls in rural and urban communities dread to attend school when menstruating.

That situation often compounded young boys who ignorantly abuse girls who mistakenly stain their uniforms hence the education.

“Even though items of menstrual hygiene are available, cost is often a prohibitive factor for many particularly those in rural Ghana” she said.

Menstruation, though a natural phenomenon, cultural and political factors have made it only the woman and girl’s burden.

The awareness was targeted at students from class six to JHS three

Expressing gratitude to the CEO, Mr Sampson Ahianyo, the Headteacher of St Lawrence Basic School B pleaded to use the items for the intended purpose.

On his part he called on other stakeholders to support students in the basic schools with items that could promote learning and teaching in various communities.

Madam Abigail Hayford, a pupil at Ankaful M/A Basic school expressed gratitude to the foundation for the kind gesture and called on others to come to their aid to support them.
