Support 2000 kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

In this project our focus has been mainly on supporting girls with sanitary towels which has been our major activity.  The project has other activities but provision of reusable sanitary towels has been very essential and especially during the covid 19 pandemic. In the process of implementing this activity we have been addressing 2 areas one is providing sanitary towels to our girls and they remain in school and the other one is promoting Karunga women group creating job opportunities for them.   Many families were negatively affected by the pandemic and in some families bread winners lost their source of income worsening the situation and especially in the vulnerable households leaving the parents with very little to offer to their children.  We have continuously worked with Karunga women group as we have been purchasing reusable sanitary towels from them.  The women in the group have lost their source of income as a result of the pandemic and following the restrictions by the ministry of health the group put on hold monthly meetings, working in the workshop etc.  The market for their products was affected as well resulting to reduced income.  The pandemic is still there and people are learning to cope with the situation and working out on alternatives to earn income and provide basic needs to their families.  Karunga women group recognizes Necofa as their reliable customers for the reusable sanitary towels and whenever we take long without placing orders, they never get tired of calling us requesting us place orders for their products.  On our end it has not been obvious to place order with them not because we don’t want their products but due to limited resources.  The number of beneficiaries is growing day by day unfortunately we have not been in a position to accommodate the high demand for the reusable sanitary towels.  Our concern to our girls is great and we find ways of supporting the most vulnerable girls with sanitary towels.  Thank you for your generosity which has enabled us address some of the most needed support.  Girls are dropping out of school due to pregnancies and early marriages as a result of vulnerability.  We have tried to save the situation but still there is much to be done.  Trainings on sexuality have been conducted in Baringo County where the cases of dropping out of schools have been increasing.  The government is not doing much on this and parents are left very desperate.  Together with our partners Mundo Possible from Spain, we have been conducting trainings to students and parents on sexuality and reproduction health and there is need to do more to reduce cases of girls dropping out of schools.   To achieve our goals towards this we welcome our friends and well-wishers to consider making contributions to our project.  We appreciate all support given before and we don’t take it for granted, thank you very much.
