On the first day of Judy and John’s March trip to Nairobi, they met with Judy Gration, and thanked her in person for covering the shipping of the fabrics and supplies for RockPads. The generosity of everyone who has donated to the RockPads project has helped provide the materials needed to make the project a reality, and meet our goals. The women in the sewing center at Little Rock ECD have been hard at work sewing the soft, pretty reusable sanitary pads.
We are very pleased to announce that 200 kits (complete with the reusable pads and other fun items) are now finished! They are being distributed to school-age girls who are enrolled in reproductive education and empowerment classes in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya this month. Little Rock will also sell the pads to adult women, building a sustainable business and generating income.
We are so excited to see this project moving forward. John and Judy’s visit to Little Rock really confirmed all the wonderful news we've had about RockPads, and we are simply thrilled with its success and potential. Thanks to all of you who have supported us and given so generously. There’s still more work to do, so please continue to spread the word about RockPads!
