MENSTRUAL PRODUCTS & HEALTH
RuGirlz provide sustainable menstrual products along with Menstrual and reproductive health education.
We solicit for educational support and scholarship to create second-chance opportunities for school dropouts and young mothers to go back to school to acquire livelihood skills to thrive.
We design programs specifically directed to connect young girls with mentors to strengthen and direct their passion to reach their full potential.
Millions of women and children struggle to meet their most basic daily needs, leaving them extremely vulnerable to economic shocks and disasters. We create skill training opportunities to empower them with a sustainable livelihood.
GIRL CHILD PARTICIPATION
Young girls have the right to take part in decisions that affect their lives but most often their involvement is limited and always resides at the bottom.
Rural Girls Empowerment
We work to empower underprivileged girls and youth by creating access to sustainable menstrual products and sexual reproductive health education and skill training opportunities to young mothers aimed at tackling gender inequality and extreme poverty in the rural and low resource settings through partnership and community linkages. Our impact is focused at ending period poverty and gender-based violence towards a sustainable development in the rural areas of Ghana and beyond.

Educating Women is The Key
Educating women is the key to make our world a better place
Rural Girls Education is a non-governmental organization that empowers marginalized girls in rural areas to learn, succeed and lead change in their lives and communities through education, mentorship, and support.
Rugirlz is a movement committed to changing rural young girls’ lives through education and skill training, mentorship, and support.
We believe educated women will have educated children, educating women especially the underprivileged is the key to make our world a better place. Life in a rural setting affects access to education for the young girl who faces double disadvantage as a girl living in a marginalized community where extreme poverty, inequality, and underachievement prevails.
There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.
Thanks to RuGirlz, I am currently on a full scholarship in a skill development centre,ICCESS, where I am learning Fashion Design to help me cater for my five (5) children as a single mother. Rugirlz is carrying out this for the past many years with immense hard work, dedication, perseverance and with a vision to support and uplift the economically & socially deprived people. All this is happening in Ghana.
I never had a peaceful life in the past imagining the troubles of abuse in my community, but thanks to Rugilz where i got the sponsorship to education and can now be proud to be part of a society where the voiceless is helped day in day out. A big Thank you.
My advice to the world is that, Girls should be matured before getting into marriage. Avoid underage marriage and get Education. For there is a saying that if you educate a woman, you educate the entire nation. Thank you Rugirlz for educating and changing my life.
