A display of our work in Cameroon in Puri communities,
From May to June, Menstrual hygiene and health management in different division and districts in Cameroon. Girls in hard to reach communities will be trained to produce clean and affordable Pads to manage their menstruation with dignity. It has not been easy sewing these pads with simple hands and just with the niddles and thread. We are soliciting for sewing machines and material to enable these girls produce more decent pads for themselves and for their immediate communities.
Three years ago under the patronage of Rev. M. Simon. the Cho Ngafor Foundation had the possibility to break the taboo and talk about menstruation after Church service. Today with the support of Rev. Festus we are able to talk about menstruation during church services. On different occasions, we were about to sensitise, educate and support of about 3011 on menstruation, hygiene and sanitation. Thanks to the Team.https://www.facebook.com/ChoNgaforFoundation/posts/10218515264447189

Proving Disposal pads during our MHM campaign last 2017 was a huge task. We had many open question of the affordability of these pad after the campaign. Because of that we decided to learn how to produce cloth pads (Washable and reusable Pads) to support these girls. Two months latter we spent afternoons besides a sewing machines, cutting, patching up and finally came up with something we could share back with communities. The Team in Cameroon organised a training session where we could use the social Media to communicate. It was a huge success.
Around Mbengwi (Bome,Mbengw, and Acha) we visited different Villages. It was another thrilling year full of surprises and great fun as we spent time around sharing our experience teaching, and gaining lessons with others on how to manage menstruation.

There is nothing great as talking about your own culture while living in another cultural setting. It was my pleasure spending a day with the confirmation Class in Köniz- Switzerland like we do in Cameroon. Our activities were characterized by a PowerPoint presentation, Cooking, and eating together beside other social activities just like other school children will do during this period in Cameroon. Are you interested to carry on such projects with your groups. We will love to share our experience with you. Take a look to our fun full day……Pictures
