Our journey has been one of compassion, commitment, and unwavering dedication to transforming the lives of underprivileged girls. Witnessing the struggles faced by young girls—resorting to unhygienic alternatives, missing out on education, and compromising their well-being—ignited a passion within us to make a lasting impact. From humble beginnings, the ROG Foundation emerged as a beacon of hope for those who faced the harsh reality of inadequate access to sanitary products and reproductive health education.
Through tireless efforts and unwavering support from compassionate individuals and partners, we have held monthly outreach programs under our, “1 Girl, 1 Sanitary Pad Pack Each Month,” initiative, reaching diverse communities and schools. We have been successful at redefining norms, eradicating barriers, and impacting the lives of over 1,000 girls of school-going age through education on menstrual health and hygiene and the provision of menstrual health products in the form of sanitary pads. Our very first outreach was held in the Agbobloshie Market in December 2022. In 2023, we visited 11 schools and held one community outreach in Ekumfi in the Central Region.

The journey so far is a tapestry woven with stories of transformation. We’ve seen shy smiles turn into confident grins, heard voices once muted by stigma speak out with pride, and witnessed the resilience of young girls thriving despite challenges. Each milestone, each life touched, fuels our determination to push boundaries and amplify our impact
CURRENTLY AND IN THE NEXT DECADE...
From laying the groundwork to nurturing a network of support, our journey has been a testament to the collective power of compassion and action.
…BUT THIS JOURNEY IS FAR FROM OVER.
With your continued support, we aspire to reach more girls, break more barriers, and create a world where every girl’s right to dignity, education, and health is undeniable.
