Support 2000Kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

Provision of sanitary towels to the school girls has been a very successful interventions with a lot of impact to the girls and their parents.  We have been following up the impact of the sanitary towels distributed to girls in primary and secondary schools and the feedback we received from the girls and teachers was impressing.  Their performance has really improved since they have been attending school throughout the term unlike before where they used to miss school during their monthly periods which really affected their performance.  The teachers informed us that they have also gained a lot of confidence and courage and they are now in a position to raise their voices and whenever they are any type of harassments by the men or boys they speak out and raise the alarm.  The teachers said the girls are now empowered and the boys are feeling threatened.  We were impressed by the feedback from the girls and the teachers and we would like to express our appreciation to our friends and well-wishers for their generous contribution and improving the life style of our young girls. 

We bought more sanitary towels which we distributed to another vulnerable primary school in Baringo and 60 girls benefitted.  During our previous sanitary towels distribution in other schools, teachers informed us that some girls did not have panties and teachers requested us to consider supporting most vulnerable with panties when distributing sanitary towels.  Through our friends we managed to raise some money for panties and when we were distributing sanitary towels we gave 2 panties to all the sixty girls.  We will be requesting contribution from our friends and well-wishers and when possible we will be distributing them to vulnerable girls when distributing sanitary towels to the girls.  We therefore extend the invitation to our global giving friends and well-wishers to consider continue contributing to this initiative and also consider contributing towards panties for the vulnerable girls.  Thank you in advance for all your support.  Our schools will be closing school next week for the long December holiday and we hope to do more fundraising between now and January so that we can raise more funds to continue supporting our school girls once they resume school next year.  As they break for long holiday we wish them all the best and we always advise them to take care and especially during the festive period we believe they will be safe and we will have them back to school next year God willing.  Thank you.
