The University of The Gambia Students’ Union in its unwavering quest to promote the welfare and safeguard the dignity of its female students, yesterday 9th June, 2022, launched its Pad Drive Initiative.

This initiative themed “Action for Menstrual Hygiene and Women Empowerment for a Better UTG” seeks to provide Menstrual management products and quarterly symposiums to raise awareness on menstruation and bridge the stigma beclouding this natural phenomenon.

The event witnessed deliberations from the respective speakers as reflected in the program guide, an insightful and interactive panel discussion on menstruation, and the presentation of pads to Faculty-based Sub-associations who shall distribute these pads to our mothers and sisters on the university based on need. Nineteen cartons of pads are paraded in that regard.

While the Students’ Union thank its erudite guess, students of the University, and Sub-association leaders for honoring its invitation, we wish to call on all stakeholders to support this initiative.

In your service we remain resolute.
