We heard from one of our male community champions in Uganda who would like to share his experience of becoming menstrual hygiene champions.
“I didn’t even see menstruation as an issue before Irise came here… I’d say ah it’s minor, it’s just an issue for females. My attitudes changed a lot… Menstruation is something everyone needs to learn about because it’s normal, it happens in normal life to our mothers, our sisters and the girls… it was Irise who changed my behaviour towards these girls and I hope I can change community members negative attitudes and behaviours towards girls who are menstruating!”
“I’m so glad to be a community champion, it’s a great pleasure to be a champion for Irise, I’ve gained so much knowledge” – it’s a great pleasure to have you on board, Sam!
Help us to train more young community members like Sam to join the fight against period poverty!
