Menstrual Hygiene Day Warri

Lafemme is a French word for "The Woman". It's a non-governmental organization founded by two ex corpers, Emmanuella Imo and Anita Okunweze in February 2018.
These corp members who served in the city of Warri saw a need in the lives of teenagers especially, young girls. Young girls in Warri are skilless, with little or no education, they embrace wrong vices as the norm and the absence of role models has further encouraged the ungodly decisions and life choices.

These ladies saw the need to do something and so, Lafemme was born to empower young girls to pursue and acquire entrepreneurial skills, build the right moral values and become future role models in the city.

Lafemme is driven by a single vision to create a community that will empower women to achieve their dreams, be it in education or business.

This vision drives the organization commitment to
1. Career development of the young women.
2. Support and encourage talents.
3. Create the environment that will help young and ambitious women pursue their dreams.

The organization is in the process of registering with Corporate Affairs Commission, and in the nearest future be registered.

Menstrual Hygiene Day is the second event under their belt, they kicked off with World Women day, #PressForProgress, with over 40 young girls in attendance, to learn, network and opportunity to meet and learn from young ladies doing amazing things in the city of Warri.

Menstrual Hygiene day is another opportunity for them to impact young ladies across four secondary schools in Warri.
The Schools are,
1. Edjeba Basic School,
2. Nana College,
3. Ekpan secondary School
4. Uwangue Grammar School.
Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day) is a global platform that brings together non-profits, government agencies, the private sector, the media and individuals to promote Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM).

This Year MHD18 celebrated in Warri, with the theme no more limits is a partnership collaboration between Lafemme, newwarri and other very supportive organizations within the city and outside the city.

MH Day raises awareness of the challenges women and girls worldwide face due to their menstruation and highlights solutions that address these challenges, including through media work.

The challenges women and girls face as a result of something that in this clime varies from city to city, cultures, and religion.
La femme, an organization positioned to empower women and #newwarri is joining the world to celebrate "Menstrual Hygiene day" #MHD18.

This year themes is #NoMoreLimits and in planning for this event we discovered that we can break these limitations through;

1. Access to the right Information.

2. Empowerment or support
