Challenge

Menstrual hygiene is a fundamental to the dignity and well-being of girls and is a crucial part of their basic hygiene, sanitation and reproductive health to which every female has a right. The menstrual needs of girls with disabilities in Karambi Sub County have not been well met. Girl's with disabilities in the district use sponges, newspapers and pieces of dirty clothes to hold their menses in the five to seven days of their menstruation. School girls with disabilities miss attending classes.

Solution

The project will solve the problem by empowering and training girls with disabilities on menstrual management and how to make reusable safe sanitary pads.

Long-Term Impact

When the girls with disabilities are empowered on how to manage their menstrual health, girls will be able to attend class even during their menstrual period and they will be able to succeed academically. They also pass on the skills to their friends.
