Tracy Owusu Addo, also known as Tracy Sarkcess and wife of Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie, continues to champion girl and women empowerment initiatives in Ghana. As the CEO of Brave Connect, a media strategist, and co-director at the Sarkodie Foundation, Tracy Sarkcess has consistently supported these causes. Her dedication has led to the establishment of Brave Connect, an initiative aimed at empowering girls and women and providing them with the necessary resources to achieve their dreams.
One such initiative under the administration of Brave Connect is the Brave Pad Fund, which focuses on distributing sanitary pads to girls and women in thriving communities and rural areas. By promoting menstrual hygiene, this initiative aims to enhance the overall well-being and healthy living of these communities.
In celebration of Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28th, 2023, Tracy Sarkcess and the Brave Pad Fund officially launched the initiative’s flagship program, the Brave Pad Fund – School Adoption Program. This program is a significant step towards achieving menstrual equity and will provide a one-year supply of disposable pads, totalling 60,600 units, to over 500 girls in some of Ghana’s most deprived regions.
The success of the Brave Pad Fund initiative is made possible through the invaluable support of partners such as PlaneraUK (@wearefluus) and TransmedGhanaLtd (@transmed), as well as the enthusiastic backing of the community.
Tracy Sarkcess and the Brave Pad Fund invite everyone to join their mission of supporting girls’ education and empowerment. Contributions can be made by donating or purchasing sanitary pad care kits, which will be available soon. The aim is to ensure that no girl misses school or experiences discomfort during her period.
Tracy Sarkcess and the Brave Pad Fund’s commitment to menstrual hygiene and empowerment serves as an inspiration for others. Through their relentless efforts, they are making a positive impact on the lives of girls and women in Ghana.
