By Mary Mbago On May. 23, 2024

Siku maridhawa ya Mei 18, 2024, inaingia katika kumbukumbu kama siku ambayo shirika Femina Hip lilitambuliwa kwa tuzo maalum kwa juhudi zake za kuipambania hedhi salama. Ilikuwa jijini Dar es Salaam katika gala ya kuvutia iliyoandaliwa na taasisi ya Her Movement Tanzania ambapo juhudi za Taasisi ya Femina Hip zilipongezwa kwa mchango wake wa dhati katika kuelimisha jamii kuhusu afya ya hedhi.

Kutambuliwa kwa Femina Hip kwa kupewa Cheti cha Shukrani kulikuwa ishara ya heshima kwa kazi yake ya kujitolea katika kueneza mwanga katika eneo hili muhimu la afya ya jamii. Hafla hii haikuwa tu kuhusu kupongezana, ilikuwa pia fursa ya kipekee ya kubadilishana mawazo, kushirikishana uzoefu, na kuzidi kuimarisha mikakati ya pamoja. Lengo lilikuwa dhahiri: kuhakikisha kila msichana anafikiwa na elimu na huduma za afya ya hedhi salama. Kwa kushirikiana na wadau wengine, Femina Hip ilionyesha ujasiri wake na dhamira ya dhati ya kuleta mabadiliko chanya katika jamii. Kupokea heshima hii kulisindikizwa na ahadi ya Femina Hip ya kudumisha azma yake ya kuendelea kufanya kazi kwa bidii. Cheti hicho cha Heshima, kilipokelewa na Mary Mbago, ambaye ni mmoja wa wasichana wanaounda timu ya Nguvu ya Binti, timu maalum kabisa ndani ya Femina Hip ambayo inaongoza na kusimamia masuala yote ya Hedhi Salama katika shirika. "Tunashukuru sana heshima hii. Tunaahidi kuendelea na jitihada hizi kwa nguvu na ari mpya, tukilenga kufikia malengo ya pamoja ya kuwa na jamii yenye ufahamu zaidi na afya bora zaidi kwa kila mmoja wetu." alisema Mary. Femina Hip imekuwa mstari wa mbele kwa miaka mingi kutoa elimu kwa vijana na walezi wao juu ya hedhi, ikilenga kujenga mazingira ambayo yanaondoa unyanyapaa, kumwezesha binti kuhudhuria masomo bila vikwazo wanapokuwa hedhi, na kuwajengea vijana, wasichana kwa wavulana, uthubutu na hamasa ya kutumia rasilimali walizonazo kutatua changamoto za hedhi katika maeneo wanayoishi. Pamoja na jarida la Fema, Femina Hip imefanya mafunzo ya vitendo juu ya hedhi salama katika shule nyingi nchini. Hakuna kulala, ni kazi kazi, mpaka kieleweke.
