Support 2000Kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

Our girls in schools are progressing on well despite the challenging moments beginning of this year. It has been raining since April and slowly the situation is improving. As earlier reported, we managed to buy sanitary towels for 1 school in Isiolo (Kachiuru primary school) and 1 in Kajiado (Endonyio Sidai primary school). The sanitary towels were distributed to the school girls in the two schools and the girls were very happy and excited to have them. We also managed to support 2 secondary schools in Baringo in July 2019. It was our first time to distribute towels to secondary schools where we not only did the distribution but also conducted detailed trainings on sexuality, hygiene, reproduction health, family planning, early marriages among others. Baringo County is an area where girls are facing serious challenges where they are dropping out of schools as a result of early pregnancies and early marriages. One of the contributing factors to this is high poverty levels affecting most families in the region and providing sanitary towels to girls has been very challenging with parents not able to buy them for their girls where they end up falling into men’s traps of engaging into sexual activities so that they can be given some money. The teachers confirmed to us that just like in primary schools most girls fail to attend school during their periods as they feel that they are not safe depending on the type of materials they use as sanitary towels. Girls were very happy and they promised to work hard and avoid being absent from school. They also promised to avoid sex when they are still in school. We really encouraged them to concentrate on education at this point. The teachers appreciated the training provided to both boys and girls as well as the sanitary towels given to their girls. We are happy that through your kind support we have been able to support more girls and we are very grateful for your generosity. We still have a very long way to go as we have so many girls that are still in need of the sanitary towels and we request for more support. Thank you very much.
