Challenge

1.Young girls currently cannot access sanitary towels because of lack of money since their parents lost their casual jobs hence a sanitary towel is of less priority compared to food and rent. 2. The young girls result into sexual exploitation in exchange for money to buy sanitary towels. 3. There is a high risk of girls are also losing focus on their dreams and education since schools are closed due to pandemic and they are pushed to contribute to family needs hence domestic servitude.

Solution

Girls accessing free sanitary towels will reduce sexual exploitation hence reduce the rising number of teenage pregnancies recorded in Kenya today during the Covid-19 pandemic period.

Long-Term Impact

1. Girls will resume schooling when schools re open and get education in-order to secure their future. 2. Reduce or even end child sexual exploitation among our clientele. 3. Address and end teenage pregnancies.
