This problem compound the difficulties posed by the in ability to afford sanitary towel as well as the cultural taboo and myths around menstruation.consequently,6 girls miss an average four Days Of school every month, which translate to over a month in a year , meaning they lag behind in class and a times drop out of school all together as the rate grow.

Solution

KCCN initiative is to empower the vulnerable girls through provision of re-usable pads and capacity building on menstrual hygiene management and reproductive health for improved performance and self esteem. one packet of the re-usable sanitary towels that will be distributed through this project is sufficient to meet the sanitary need of a girl for three years at a cost of 1,020/-ksh.The adoption of re-usable sanitary towels which trade at 400/- is therefore more likely to be sustainable.
