support 2000 Kenya school girls with reusable pads
By Lucy Mathenge - Project Assistant
It’s another new year and we are happy to report that our girls from different schools had a great long December holiday. They are now back to school for a new term and for those who graduated from primary school they have now joined different secondary schools in different parts of the country. We are proud of them for the achievements and smooth transition. As we start the year, we plan to do more for our girls in terms of empowering them and ensuring that they remain in school as expected. We have a group of girls who are starting their adolescent and maturity and menstruation might be a night mare to some of them and especially the very young one who doesn’t understand what is happening or what will happen to their bodies. There is need to have sessions on some of these sensitive topics with them to prepare them even before they are taught by their teachers where sometimes they don’t dig deeper into the details and we have realized that some of them are not well prepared and they get confused in the process. Our plans are to have these sessions with these girls and their teachers so that they can understand into details what this is all about as well as give them room to air their views and ask questions which they might be having. We intend to do this when distributing reusable sanitary towels in various schools in the course of the year. The idea is to support and help as many girls as possible but due to limited resources, we are not in a position to support many girls but with your support and donations, we can increase the number of beneficiaries and we therefore invite you as we start the year to consider walking the journey with us. This school term, we intend to distribute some sanitary towels to a school in Baringo where we will also conduct the sessions as we continue fundraising for more funds to support other schools who have already requested us to consider them. We appreciate the support and your generous contributions that you have given us. Thank you very much as we pray for more blessings to you and your loved ones.
