The dignity kit project is focused on supporting displaced girls and women to maintain their dignity by providing dignity kits to meet their basic hygiene needs.
Seventy-nine per cent (79%) of IDPs are vulnerable women and children. Many of the displaced girls and women have suffered different forms of exploitation when in need of basic items, with very few channels of expressing or reporting these grievances and abuse.
A dignity kit is a simple “tool” that contains the basic requirements of every woman: comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, nail clippers, bath soap, bath sponge, bath towel, shaving stick, sanitary towel, underwear, and slippers.
The dignity kit includes cash-based assistance – (Kits include N50 each for paracetamol to ease period pain).
Young girls and women should never have to be exploited to meet their hygiene needs. Dignity can and must be regained for our displaced women.
