EWEI Civic Education and Participation for Women Project (CEPWOP) 2018-2019 : Kaduna State is ranked lowest in political participation, and as such inclusive and participatory governance is low. The low participation of women has been attributed to not being encouraged to be engaged politically or contest for elective positions. To change the narrative we carried out 2 pre-project surveys engaging 100 respondents from Malali and Tum Communities.

EWEI’ s Menstrual Hygiene Management Survey Report: Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is an essential aspect of hygiene for women and adolescent girls between menarche and menopause. Despite being an important issue concerning women and girls in the menstruating age group, MHM is not always given priority in various interventions and therefore the needs of girls and women hardly catered to.
In order to gain a better understanding of the menstrual management needs of communities in northern Nigeria, EWEI carried out a survey in Dan Hono Community, in Chikun Local Government Area, Kaduna from 14 – 18 August 2020. Read the report via the link below.
