Who We Are
Welcome to the Ruby ‘Osmo’ Girls Foundation (The ROG Foundation), where compassion meets action.
Our Name: A Beacon of Hope
- Ruby – Ruby is a precious gemstone that is believed to promote love, nurturing, health and compassion.
- Osmo – This is a slang for menstrual periods used by some girls in a part of the Central Region of Ghana.
We believe that every girl is precious and deserves to be loved, nurtured and ultimately, to be in good health.
We, therefore, extend love and compassion towards underprivileged young girls by providing them with sanitary pads and educating them on good, hygienic reproductive health practices.

Our story started...
WHY WE STARTED
We live in a world where access to sanitary pads remains a luxury for many young girls. The ROG Foundation was born from a deep-rooted concern for the welfare of underprivileged girls and young women.
Shocking reports have revealed the distressing reality that some girls, due to the exorbitant cost of sanitary products, resort to unhygienic alternatives like rags or even worse, are compelled to trade their bodies for money to afford these necessities.
This dire situation sparked a commitment within us to make a tangible difference.
We believe that no girl should miss out on education, compromise her health, or face indignity due to menstrual challenges.
Our Approach: Empowerment in Action
The heartbeat of our efforts lies in our monthly outreach program, “1 Girl, 1 Sanitary Pad Each Month.” Within various communities and schools, our dedicated team conducts comprehensive sessions designed to educate, empower, and uplift. Our approach includes educational sessions facilitated by health professionals, interactive Q&A segments, and, most importantly, the donation of sanitary pads.
Beyond the tangible donations, we prioritize personal connections. Through one-on-one interactions, we aim to create safe spaces where girls feel supported, heard, and empowered to manage their reproductive health confidently. Each outreach culminates in a photo session, capturing not just smiles but the essence of hope and resilience in the eyes of our beneficiaries.
Together, We Make a Difference
At the ROG Foundation, our work extends far beyond mere donations; it’s about restoring dignity, ensuring education, and nurturing a generation of empowered young women. Join us in our journey to make menstrual health a right, not a privilege, for every girl.
Together, we can create…
- A world where every girl is equipped , empowered and celebrated
- A future where every girl stands tall, empowered by knowledge , dignity and good health.
