support 2000 Kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

The year 2020 turned to be a very different year to many people in different countries world wide as a result of corona virus infections.  In some countries the pandemic started as early as January and since then many activities have been heavily affected.  In Kenya the first corona virus case was reported in March where the government closed all the institutions immediately.   Our plans were to visit the schools and conduct trainings in various schools and distribute sanitary towels but due to the pandemic this turned out to be a different story.  In February we managed to visit a primary school in Baringo County as earlier reported.  During the visit, we conducted empowering sessions to the girls and teachers and distributed 120 packs of reusable sanitary towels to the girls.   The sessions were very fruitful and we promised to continue with the sessions during monitoring visits in the course of the year.  We had scheduled visit to other schools in the course of the term in Baringo and Nakuru County which we had to cancel when the schools were closed.  The idea was to conduct more sessions empowering our girls and the teachers and distributing sanitary towels where possible.   We hope to continue with these sessions once the schools reopen.  At the moment, we continue fundraising for reusable sanitary towels to be distributed as we go for the sessions.  The number of schools requesting for our support is increasing where many teachers have reported cases of vulnerability in most families expressing urgent need of the sanitary towels as many young girls are dropping out of school at early stages.  Due to vulnebility, many young girls are being abused by the young men in the villages where they are sexually used for them to be given some money to buy some essentials as sanitary towels.  As a result of this, some girls end up getting pregnant and others getting married at very early ages thus dropping out of school.  We are concerned if they continue staying home due to corona virus pandemic as the number of these cases may continue to rise.  As we continue fundraising, we request for your support on this as we also thank you for your continued support.
