Sanitary kits to keep 300 girls in school in Kenya



KCRC will partners with a slum based org., which works with women in urban slums to produce reusable sanitary towels.The centre will buy sanitary kits for distribution to the neediest girls in schools

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many poor girls in rural areas miss up to four or more days of classes every month during menstruation because they cannot afford sanitary pads or napkins. Some girls are known to use old piece of cloth, tissue paper, plastic paper or even newspapers or leaves in a bid to manage their periods. This often leads to embarrassing moments and many of the girls opt to skip class altogether.

How will this project solve this problem?

Using the money donated by wellwishers through Global Giving, the centre will buy sanitary kits for distribution to the most needy girls in schools in the Kebirigo area of Nyamira District

Potential Long Term Impact

This project aims to provide girls in primary school aged 13-19 years with a supply of locally available re-usable sanitary pads so that they can confidently and hygienically manage their periods and attend school throughout the month.
