Support 2000 kenya school girls with reusable pads

By Lucy Mathenge | Project Assistant

The year 2020 is gone and we have started a new year 2021, it is our prayers that the year will be fruitful and we will have more reasons to smile and forget the year 2020 which was very difficult for many people in the world.  Lives has been lost and many other negative things came in as a result of the pandemic.  We are happy that finally our schools have been opened and student have reported back.  It was our prayers for this to happen as it really hurts to see young people boys and girls ruining their lives and other people ruining lives of the young people.  In this case our girls in many parts of the country were negatively affected by the prolonged closure of schools where many men took advantage of them being out of school.  The government has been reporting an increased number of girls dropping out of schools as a result of pregnancies and early marriages during the pandemic which is very sad.  Poverty as well has contributed to this and many girls fell in the traps of men who used them sexually cheating them with money and taking advantage of their vulnerability.  Sanitary towels are basic essentials that every girl over the age of 12 years and some even below need to have every month and have enough of them to use during their ministrations.  Unfortunately for some reasons, many girls and especially in the villages where majority are do not always have sanitary towels when they need them.  We have been distributing reusable sanitary towels in schools so that these girls have them ready every month they need them.  In November and December 2020 we distributed 100 packs of reusable sanitary towels to needy girls in Kajiado, Isiolo and Baringo Counties especially focusing on young girls who have just started experiencing monthly periods.  We understand that there is an increased need of sanitary towels in various parts of the country and we intend to distribute more sanitary towels in schools.  We hope to have more friends, well-wishers, partners and donors contribute to our project to enable us distribute more sanitary towels to the needy girls and save them from the men who are sexually using them in exchange of money to buy sanitary towels.  This project has benefitted many girls and we would wish to have many more benefiting.  There are many young girls who are starting their periods at a tender age and we would hate to see them suffering and struggling during their monthly periods.  We invite you to help us save our young girls by contributing to this project and buy them sanitary towels.  Thank you for the support given previously and helping in saving our girls, we really appreciate and together we will save even more and build their confidence and dignity.  Thank you once more.
