WGEP Kenya scholars learn to make sanitary pads

WGEP Kenya scholars recently participated in a workshop where they learned to make their own reusable cloth sanitary pads. Lack of access to sanitary items can lead to high absenteeism among teenage girls in remote rural areas.

WGEP programs are committed to a multilayered approach in addressing the barriers that keep girls from attending and staying in school. To read more about WGEP Kenya, please visit us at
