Tracy Owusu Addo aka Tracy Sarkcess and Menaye Donkor have joined forces together to provide free sanitary pads to girls in underprivileged areas across the length and breadth of Ghana.
This initiative is under the auspices of their respective human-interest companies: BRAVE and Sincerëly Ghana Limited.
This initiative is dubbed “End Period Poverty” which seeks to provide answers to the periodic reproductive health of young girls ad to educate them on good practices.
Tracy Sarkcess and Menaye Donkor who is wife to Ghanaian footballer Sulley Muntari have provided over 1,000 sanitary pads to girls in remote areas in the country who could not afford this basic necessity.
Sincerely aims to provide quality menstrual hygiene products at affordable prices, together with sincere menstrual health and hygiene education for all, to become a voice of authority on the continent, and ultimately in the world, on the subject of Menstruation.
BRAVE which is owned by Tracy Sarkcess the wife to rapper Sarkodie is more or less like a club that will have base in Senior High Schools and Universities in Ghana where girls between the ages of 17 and 25 are guided and mentored to aspire and achieve greater heights.

Trace Sarkcess shared the following information on her Twitter timeline:
The genesis of the #SincerelyBRAVEProject and donation to the community of Minya in Ningo-Prampram started with Faustina Boamah, a midwife who attended our digital skills workshop last year in Oct.
2./ Faustina told us about the Minya community & the dire situation there. The community is faced with rampant cases of teenage pregnancies. The young girls are usually exploited by the men in the community, mostly due to the lack of easy access to basic needs such as sanitary pads.
3./ Our team decided to search and partner with a sanitary pad brand, that is fresh, has that big “sister appeal” and also willing to collaborate with us to make a meaningful impact. Sincerely Pads by Menaye, was the perfect partner, hence the SincerelyBRAVE Project.
4./ For our visit to Minya, Sincerely pads provided us with over a 1000 pads. In support of this initiative was our resource person, @dr.hannahlisa, who engaged the girls on issues such as menstrual hygiene, sexual reproductive health and abstinence.
5./@menayedonkor and @TracySarkcess Tracy will be embarking on various such activities over the next couple of months. A big thank you to all our team members and everyone who helped to make this a success.
