Dear Friends of PridePads Africa,
International Women’s Day - Ngaoundere, Cameroon
Our PridePads team in Ngaoundéré participated in the International Women’s Day March for the second year in a row! The march honored local groups and individuals who have been instrumental in empowering Cameroonian women. Although our team did not march this year, they were cheering everyone on from the stands! After the ceremony, the team returned to our headquarters and had a celebratory meal. We are grateful to our team for standing with all women and supporting young girls to be the next generation of leaders.
Prior to Wednesday’s festivities, the PridePads team visited the Ngaoundéré 3 Council and met with the Regional Delegation for Women and the Family. They emphasized the importance of menstrual health education in addition to standard school education, especially for girls and young women.
