Turning Periods into Pathways30/11/2020
Young girls in Kenya miss an average of 5 days of school per month due to menstrual shame. This is the equivalent of missing 50 days per school year.
Borana Conservancy has teamed up with Days for Girls to break the silence through holistic menstrual health education and the distribution of washable and re-usable sanitary towels. The aim is to distribute Days for Girls supreme menstrual kits to 1,000 female students in the Borana Education Support Programme. Each supreme kit costs $10 and will last one girl 3 years. This cost includes a kit demonstration and an Ambassador of Women Health training from Pauline, the Borana Mobile Clinic nurse.
Help us to give girls the freedom to attend school every day by making a donation.
By donating $10 for one kit you are giving a Kenyan girl the freedom to attend school every day and reach her full potential.
