Why create awareness?
We are a social advocacy organization conducting community awareness activities. We do this in support of the legal and natural rights of women living with endometriosis and associated menstrual disorders as a means to achieving social justice.
Early detection and treatment by a gynecologist are crucial and can prevent years of unnecessary pain, suffering, and potential infertility.
What kind of awareness?
Our programs aim at: educating the public on endometriosis; discussing pertinent information on the symptoms to look out for; empowering girls with useful tips to help them take control of their individual health management as well as sharing contacts of gynecologists, diets, alternative lifestyle treatments, etc. In addition, the Women and Girls Support program offers online support services for both girls and women with endometriosis and those generally suffering from related issues such as infertility and adenomyosis. We also look to collaborate with others of like mind as well as advocate for a better environment for those living with endometriosis in terms of diagnosis, treatment and management.
How is this done?
This year, Endo Sisters East Africa Foundation is privileged to participate in the Great Places to School Initiative under the Health and Hygiene category. We do so through our social media platforms, outreach training programs (#ENPOWR Endo Edukit program), speaking engagements, yellow Nails Movement, TV and print media. Specifically, we have an open facebook page where we regularly publish information on endometriosis for the public (web.facebook.com/endosisterseastafrica/) as well as both a twitter and Instagram account.
