Brown Girl Woke

NGO in Samoa gives out free reusable and organic pads

The workshop was held in an all-women college belonging to the largest church organisation in Samoa, the Congregational Christian Church.

The Brown Girl Woke group visited Papauta Girls College last week as part of raising awareness in line with World Hygiene Day.

The group's director, Maluseu Doris Tulifau, said menstrual hygiene is still a taboo topic in Samoa and mothers often don't explain the female body, nor is it discussed in many schools.
