Challenge

850,000 Girls in Kenya miss school 5 to 6 days every month during their menstruation because they cannot afford sanitary pads. This means that a girl who is absent from school due to menses for five days per month loses 15 learning days equivalent to 45 days out of school in a year! Mfariji Africa seeks to support these girls from poor social economic background with annual packs of sanitary towels to reduce absenteeism from school leading to poor performance.

Solution

Through menstrual hygiene training,provision of sanitary pads and underwears we are ensuring that periods do not get in the way of girls right to education.Through our Leadership and training workshops we equip, empower and educate teenage girls to make healthy choices through life skills, relationship and character building.

Long-Term Impact

This project will support 1000 kenyan girls to stay in school and complete their education.In turn we will be growing the number of young Kenyan women entering adulthood equipped to become the next generation of leaders and change agents.
