Girls' Lives Improving with Complete Kits, There's Still More to Be Done!

We are very pleased to report that the rest of the fabric needed to complete 200 kits was received and used, and the rest of the kits were distributed. This means that 200 teenage girls have received re-usable sanitary towels! Each girl received 6 pads with wings and 10 liners. The girls also received washing detergents to wash the sanitary towels after using. The girls were able to soak the sanitary towels in the buckets in which the rest of the materials were distributed. The kit also included mesh bags for airing the sanitary towels after washing, as well as 2 pairs of underpants for each girl to use while having her period.

The girls these kits helps are girls like Emily Atieno, who would not attend school when she had her period. Emily has benefited from the program already; since receiving her kit, she has been able to attend school regularly, which has resulted in an improvement in her academic performance!

The program doesn't end with the distribution of the kits, though. The girls who have benefited from the Pads for Peace program have started knitting draw string bags that are used for packing the sanitary pads. There are still many more girls who can benefit from Pads for Peace. Our goal is 2,000. The holidays are almost upon us, and what better time is there to give? We hope that as the season progresses you will keep Pads for Peace in mind.

As always, we thank you for your support!
