The first IT company in Nigeria, according to reports, to implement a menstruation leave policy of this nature.

According to Klasha, the policy would initially grant five days off a year, but that could change as they assess its efficacy after it is put into place.

CEO, Jess Anuna said in a statement:

“At Klasha, we understand that we must make room for women’s biological needs as a part of everyday business. Rather than leave the subject as an unspoken taboo, we want to build a culture of trust, truth, and acceptance.“

They claim that 60% of their staff members are women on their website.
