Period poverty refers to the lack of access to menstrual hygieneproducts, education, and other tools that allow menstruating women and girls to manage their period withsafety and dignity.
In many developing countries, menstruation is taboo and not openly discussed, therefore becoming a confusing and scary experience for young girls.
These girls are often torn betweenpurchasing food or menstrual supplies.
Many have been forced to improvise with devices that may be ineffective, unhygienic, and unsafe
Our GN Packs are tools that enable young
girls to be confident and let them know that
they are valued and loved.
Jedidiah Talom Foundation (JTF) was officially founded in January 2020 and launched on September 6, 2020, the first anniversary of Jedidiah’s passing. Jedidiah Talom, who the foundation is named, was a beautiful, talented and passionate young woman. She liked to make everyone around her feel loved and valued, as her friends described. She was a senior at Texas A&M University at College Station when she left us.
The last three months of Jedidiah’s life, from May-August 2019, were extraordinary, just to say the least. During that time, Jedidiah demonstrates an incredible passion for God through fasting, prayers, and personal bible studies. She also shared that she wanted to do something for Cameroon, her country of birth, and Africa’s continent in general. However, since she left Cameroon at the age of 8, she didn’t know what she could help with.
