Charity Fundraising Africa Menstrual Resources Girls Education Project Launched

A Christian charity fundraising project was announced by Emmanuel International UK to support sub-Saharan African girls with education and resources relating to menstrual hygiene, which in turn aims to support better educational outcomes for these girls.

Chichester, United Kingdom - December 2, 2019 /NewsNetwork/ —

Established in 1978, UK Christian charity Emmanuel International (EIUK), announces the release of a new fund-raising project with the aim being to provide education and resources to African girls about menstrual hygiene. It has been demonstrated that education and support with regard to menstrual hygiene improves educational outcomes for girls in Africa and increases their future earning potential.

Go to for information about EIUK and the charitable volunteer projects in Africa.

EIUK have been involved in development projects across the world since 1978 and they work with the local churches in the communities they assist, providing volunteers to implement projects that build the self-reliance and the dignity of the people being served.

With the launch of this project Emmanuel International will raise funds to provide volunteer workers to go to sub-Saharan African countries and implement the menstrual hygiene education and resources programs to girls. EIUK, currently have volunteers working across 9 different projects in Tanzania and Uganda, and report that this new project to support menstrual hygiene is very important because girls often miss significants amounts of time at school and sometimes leave school altogether after they start menstruating.

A spokesperson from EIUK said “keeping girls in school is a must”, and noted that UNICEF estimated 1 in 10 African girls skip school 4 to 5 days per month, or drop out completely, because of menstruation. This is the equivalent of two weeks of learning lost every school term. With studies showing that every year of school attendance increases a girl’s future earning power by 10 to 20 percent, and can reduce the risk of contracting HIV, and lessen or delay the rate of teenage pregnancies in these communities.

EIUK are a member of Global Connections and they work under their Code, with their core values in line with the Guidelines For Charity Management. Being a trusted registered charity, established for over 40 years and with a Christian mission, Emmanuel International is hoping for a successful fundraising effort to support the newly launched project to support girls with their menstrual hygiene in Africa.

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

May 28, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

May 28, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

May 28, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
