Health and Hygiene Project | The SHE Project
February 22, 2023 - - Posted by Women's Foundation Team
The Health and Hygiene Project seeks to combat issues of social isolation, bullying, and self-esteem by providing education and hygiene toiletries at no cost to students attending elementary, middle, high and colleges in Jackson, MS.
The program will address these disparities with educational sessions for proper hygiene. Cultural and age-appropriate information will be provided via onsite workshops in addition to digital/written materials for reference.
Secondly, the program will provide an onsite hygiene closet stocked with items such as lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, soap, deodorant, sanitary napkins, brush, comb, and hand sanitizer. Finally, if issues related to reproductive and/or sexual health are identified during the workshops, students will be linked to medical services.
