Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given school supplies and menstruation products to Nigerian female pupils.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell Foundation announced the donation in a statement on Tuesday, in collaboration with the GEANCO Foundation.

The foundation stated that it will help 2,500 girls’ well-being by providing them with menstrual health information.

“As students around the world returned to school this month, The Archewell Foundation supported girls’ education and health by sending school supplies and menstrual products to young scholars in Nigeria with The GEANCO Foundation,” the statement reads.

“GEANCO provides critical health care and education services in Nigeria. Its David Oyelowo Leadership Scholarship provides full tuition, medical care, and social and emotional support to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality in Nigeria.

“Afam Onyema, CEO of GEANCO, joined the Archewell staff to help fill backpacks with supplies and menstrual products.

“AWF’s support will also provide menstrual health education for 2,500 girls in the region GEANCO serves, supporting the health and well-being of girls pursuing their education.”

The couple sent an undefined sum of money to charity organizations in October 2022 to “help provide relief following devastating floods wreaking havoc in Nigeria.”

The donation comes after the Duchess disclosed in an episode of her podcast ‘Archetypes’ that she is 43 percent Nigerian.
