IGEA Enterprise

Access to a quality education
for all girls in rural communities

Our work

A Project Based System

When we talk about barriers to education, there are numerous physical as well as mental blocks obstructing the path of a girl. We want to be certain to provide efficient and meaningful impact. This means tackling one barrier at a time.

The first barrier that we are working to dissolve is menstruation and the lack of sanitary care in rural Africa.​

Follow the story of our first project, Mesturate and Educate and the trial run held in Bolgatanga, Ghana

" I could not really speak about periods in my house because of my dad and brother. My mother would buy me pads a couple of times a year because they are expensive. Sarah has taught a lot about periods and I won't even have to bother my mother for pads. I feel very confident. " - Mary, 14 years old
