Support 2000 Kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

The project is progressing on well and we are happy to report that we were able to interview some beneficiaries on their experience with the reusable sanitary towels and the feedback we received was satisfactory the girls said the towels have been very effective as they have them readily available with them and they don’t bother their parents any more to buy the sanitary towels and instead the parents addresses other issues with the money.  They also reported that they don’t miss school any more when they are in their days and that ensures that they are fully concentrating in their studies unlike there before.  They have developed self-esteem and their hygiene status has really improved as a result of the talks they receive during the distribution of the sanitary towels.  Their teachers also had impressing feedback as they said girls’ absenteeism has reduced and their class participation as well as curriculum activities have improved.  Although they had not done any evaluation exams by then, the teachers were confidence that the girls will improve in their school performance.  We will follow up on this in the next school term. 

We are happy to report that we were able to distribute 100 sanitary towels to girls in Ndoinet primary school from grade 4 to grade 8.  They really appreciated and they promised to use them in appropriate way for longer service.  Most of the girls said they have been missing classes during their periods due to lack of sanitary towels and they feel they are not safe with the type of materials they used during their days.  They promised to work hard in class work and be in school when they are on their days as they had confidence with the reusable sanitary towels as discussed during distribution.  We will be making follow ups with the teachers to find out girls’ progress and also get feedback from the beneficiaries.  

On the other hand, Karunga women are happy with the progress and they appreciate the training and skills given.  They have improved in terms of quality and they are now exploring for bigger markets they are visiting schools to talk with the girls and introduce the reusable sanitary towels.  We thank all the well-wishers for supporting this project and we request them and others to continue supporting our girls and women.
