Last term we considered providing sanitary towels to vulnerable girls of Mukinyai primary school and teachers reported that these girls improved in their performances as absenteeism greatly reduced. Some of these girls are orphans and their guardians are either their grandparents or close relatives who did not care much when they miss school. After sitting for their final primary school exams, the teacher reported o us that the beneficiaries of sanitary towels performed very well but again the challenge is how they will proceed with their secondary education as their parents and guardians cannot raise school fees to take them to secondary school. For those who were lucky, they managed to get scholarships from Equity Bank of Kenya and others have applied for scholarships from other sources but they have not received feedback yet. We will be supporting more students with sanitary towels as we realize that they are benefiting our girls greatly. We are working closely with other organizations and well-wishers to raise funds to continue supporting these girls and we are also considering providing them with underwear’s as we have realized that they are also needs.
