What is SPOT all about?
SPOT is a community campaign aiming to spread awareness of puberty related issues among girls. First menstruation had always been a confusing situation for girls, and a difficult time for the parents to explain exactly what is going on. SPOT Box will ease their transition by providing relevant information to the girls experiencing the strange and new changes within their bodies.
We aim to produce 5,000 SPOT Boxes to be sold at RM35 each to parents of school girls aged 10 to 13 to start the campaign. For each SPOT Box sold, one SPOT Box will be donated to the school girls living in rural areas.
SPOT Campaign Objectives:
To help young girls and their parents especially in the rural areas get through first cycle of menstruation
To educate teenage girls about personal hygiene routine which revolve around menstruation
To create awareness of various biological changes that happens during puberty
