HOW IT BEGAN

Dr. Ajume Wingo, CU Boulder professor, author, and prince from the Nso Kingdom in Cameroon, was traveling by bus in his homeland of Cameroon, Africa, when he witnessed a young girl being ostracized by fellow travelers when she found herself menstruating for the very first time.

Lack of education about menstruation led to this girl’s unnecessary humiliation and shame. After coming to her aid and explaining that menstruation is a normal process and nothing to be afraid of, Ajume vowed to do all that he could to ensure that no other girl would experience that shame again.
