Fanthonio Foundation is a not-for-profit organization in Ghana that seeks to promote education among underprivileged school girls by providing them with sanitary materials to enable them stay in school throughout the academic year.
Face of Winter is happy to announce it partnership with Fanthonio Foundation to sustain the initiative dubbed One Friend One Box. Over the past year, Fanthonio Foundation has donated hundreds of boxes of sanitary pads to female students in Senior High Schools in Accra and in the Northern region of Ghana.
The Founder of the Foundation, Ms Felicia Anthonio expressed her gratitude to Face of Winter (FOW) Netherlands for coming on board to promote the #1Friend1Box campaign.
“We are confident that this partnership would help expand the campaign to tackle reproductive health-related absenteeism among young girls from deprived homes. There is no justification for young girls to miss classes simply because ‘it is that time of the month’ and they cannot afford sanitary pads or products,” she said.
The next donation exercise will take place at the Adidome Senior High School in the Volta region of Ghana on July 20, 2019.
