The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Menstrual Hygiene Day is commemorated yearly on May 28.

Heal for Africa Initiative

The seminar was organised by Heal for Africa Initiative, an NGO, in collaboration with True Foundation, One Aim Care Services, Miss Globe 2018 and GAMAAC.


Ataga explained that by nature women are strengthened as multitask in nature with home making, home shaping to economic advantage, adding that such business and skills have made women to be primarily the building blocks of communities.


She said girl-child and women multi-skills would help in poverty reduction, adding that an empowered woman create economics for her family and aware of how to take care of herself in and out of pregnancy.


“An empowered girl-child will reduce the unnecessary birth rate at the moment and will also reduce the unnecessary child mortality rate bedeviling the nation as well as reduce the infertility rate.


“An enlighten girl-child also help with the awareness of social communicable diseases like HIV and transmission of other sexual diseases which is at an unprecedented rate right now in the country.


“Once they are aware of the implications of these things through education, most of our social issues are resolved with the girl-child.


“Therefore, girl-child education and empowerment is critical to us because it allows them to be self aware, exposes their minds to the potentials of their future, what the future holds for them and their responsibilities to the future,” Ataga said.


The founder however advised female students to be persistent in whatever they are doing undermining the challenges, develop personal character and build their value system.


She specifically urged them to develop their emotional skills and values along with their theoretical skills in the process of their educational careers.


“Your (girl-child) education is more than just getting a certificate, more than just coming to school because everybody has come to school.


“An enlightened girl is an empowered girl, an enlighten girl has the ability to face and deploy skills on different levels that results in a lot of our social issues today, from infertility, child mortality to even your prosperity issues,” Ataga said.


She specifically noted that when a girl-child is empowered she has the ability at different levels of the society to make the best of it and excel.


“You must know who you are in terms of your character, you must know your value system quickly because you are in a system where value system is eroded by what people see just on Instagram alone.


“There are incidences everyday; you must understand your value system, create that and live by it and beyond that let your value state be something that is greater than you not by many or someone you see,” Ataga said.
