She states that the SPMC is anchored on Goal 4 of the Sustainable Development goals (SDG) of the United Nations. This buoyed the SPMC to structure its campaign around promoting period dignity during monthly periods for girls, cushioning the effects of period poverty in rural and urban areas in Nigeria, contributing to ending all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere, supporting the adoption and strengthening of sound policies and enforceable legislation by demanding for free sanitary pads for school aged girls in Nigeria.
