The Kruwa Project

Thelfort Ghana Foundation, a registered female advocacy non- governmental organization has called on women to embrace the use of silicone menstrual cups as a more sustainable way of alleviating period poverty in the country.

This was during the launch of the organization’s maiden project dubbed “The Kruwa Project” in 3 basic schools in the Kwabre East Municipality of the Ashanti region.
The Kruwa Project is aimed at introducing young girls in deprived communities in Ghana to the uses and benefits of silicone menstrual cups during their menses.Speaking at the launch, Critical Care nurse at the Enyiresi Government Hospital, Madam Evelyn Asare- Bediako said the foundation was on a mission to end period poverty in Ghana through sustainable means by the year 2030.
According to her, when kept properly, one silicone menstrual cup can last up to ten (10) years. This she believes would help keep young girls in the deprived communities in the classroom and also make less vulnerable.
The Headmistress of the Dumanafo M/A JHS, was grateful to Thelfort Ghana Foundation for the donation. She mentioned that most of the girls missed school during their menses because their parents are not able to afford sanitary pads.
At the Kasem and Sarfo M/A Schools, a midwife with the Mamponteng Government Hospital, Madam Dora Owusu- Ansah, educated students on menstrual health and hygiene.
Madam Dorcas Kyei-Baffour, a Co-founder of the group appealed to individuals and corporate institutions to support the foundation achieve its vision of ending period poverty in Ghana.
