Support 2000Kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

The year 2019 started well although with very many challenges.  It has been extremely dry in most parts of the country and many low earning families have really been struggling to make the ends meet.  Many parents have struggled to pay school fees for their children for the first term of the school calendar and providing other very basic needs for their children.  Due to prolonged drought in most parts of the country, source of income has really reduced as majority of low income earners depends on agricultural activities for survival and income generation.  We are optimistic the situation will improve soon as we expect rains.  Due to these challenges the number of needy people is unfortunately increasing and as a result we have received many requests to support school girls with reusable sanitary towels as their parents and guardians are not in a position to support their daughters due to limited resources.  We are happy to report that we managed to support 70 girls in Baringo schools with reusable sanitary towels in February 2019 and we have purchased more to be distributed in Isiolo and Kajiado when schools open for the 2nd term in May 2019.  We hope to raise more funds to purchase more towels as we have so many requests to support vulnerable girls in various schools.  Although we have not promised anything, we are requesting our well-wishers and friends to consider contributing some money so that we can support our girls with reusable sanitary towels to keep them in schools. 

During monitoring and evaluation sessions we received positive feedback from beneficiaries and the school teachers.  It was reported that girls have really improved in performance and absenteeism has really reduced.  Our beneficiaries informed us that they feel confident with sanitary towels and they feel fully protected hence no reasons to be absent during their days.  They reported that the towels are comfortable and easy to clean ensuring that their personal hygiene is improving.  They appreciated the topics on adulthood, adolescents, hygiene etc that are conducted during distribution and monitoring sessions.  They expressed their gratitude to all friends and well-wishers for their support towards this project.  They are optimistic that many girls will benefit especially those who have not received any support and struggling to get the sanitary towels which is very challenging and risking their lives.  We call upon our friends and well-wishers to continue supporting this project.  Thank you all for your kind support and we still request for more support.
