The main aim of the project is to donate sanitary pads to menstruating females in rural areas.
Tracy in a post on Instagram said the idea of the project came after she was informed about the rampant cases of teenage pregnancy in Minya in Ningo-Prampram.
She stated that the person who made her to know of the social canker said due to the teen girls’ inability to meet some of their basic needs such as buying sanitary pads, some men take advantage of them and it normally ends in pregnancy for the little girls.
At the back of these, Tracy and Menaye have taken it upon themselves to do donations of sanitary pads from time to time to various rural areas.
In her words, she wrote:
The genesis of the #SincerelyBRAVEProject and donation to the community of Minya in Ningo-Prampram started with Faustina Boamah, a midwife who attended our digital skills workshop last year in Oct.
Faustina told me about the Minya community and the dire situation there. The community is faced with rampant cases of teenage pregnancies. The young girls are usually exploited by the men in the community, mostly due to the lack of easy access to some basic needs such as sanitary pads and school necessities, etc.
My team and I decided to search and partner with a sanitary pad brand, that is fresh, has that big “sister appeal” and also willing to collaborate with us to make a meaningful impact. Sincerely Pads by Menaye, was the perfect partner, hence the SincerelyBRAVE Project.
For our visit to Minya, Sincerely pads provided us with over a 1000 pads. In support of this initiative was our resource person, @dr.hannahlisa, who engaged the girls on issues such as menstrual hygiene, sexual reproductive health and abstinence.
@menayedonkor and myself will be embarking on various such activities over the next couple of months. A big thank you to all our team members and everyone who helped to make this a success.”
