‘’ Of All Forms of Inequality, Injustice in Health is the Most Shocking and Inhuman’’

PHAAE is a registered non-profit organization in Nigeria that focuses on issues affecting women, adolescent girls and children in Africa. Our main focus is on empowering women and girls to lead healthy meaningful lives through improvement in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
As a woman led organization, we also advocates of Girl Child Education Champions and we lend our voice against girl child brides.
How We Hope To Achieve This…
PHAAE enlists the help of experts, staff and volunteers to deliver carefully researched and targeted public health communication programs as well as direct interventions to improve access to knowledge and resources for school children, adolescent girls, women and the entire community.
Take a Closer Look
We launched the “When Kids Teach Kids Program” implemented in Public Elementary schools. Peer ambassadors are selected amongst school children who are trained and who in turn educate their peers and friends of different grades.This program has proved very effective in communicating good hand hygiene behaviour in school children.
Menstrual Hygiene Management
Menstruation is a natural process linked to the reproductive cycle of women and girls. It is a sign of good health and growing up. It is not an illness but if it is not properly managed, it may result in health problems which can be compounded by social, cultural and religious practices.
We distribute hygiene essentials to women and girls in communities and also in crisis torn areas. Our hygiene kits includes the Hand kits, Kit for the Kids or K^2, Purity Kit for girls in their menstrual period, Emergency Hygiene Kit and the Family Kit and as well as important information on basic hygiene.
