Health Initiative for Adolescent Girls in Kenya

Project Leader:

Brother Paul Kabiti

This is an initiative supporting personal hygiene amongst poor and vulnerable young girls in rural towns in Kenya, empowering those that encounter various forms of stigmatization, abuse, and health challenges. So many girls in the slums of Mweiga have their dreams of education interrupted every month – and are forced to drop out of school. They do not attend school because they cannot afford personal hygiene items and must rely on old rags and leaves – and stay home. Often, the poor quality of these products can result in health complications. Poor access to sanitation facilities further compounds and perpetuates the cycle of shame. This situation also targets and endangers young girls to child predators, early pregnancies and/or marriages, and disease/infections. Please help support this plan so girls can receive these most needed health resources – and be able go to school to achieve their dreams! A gift of $25 will help adolescent girls feel empowered.

We as Brothers of St Joseph believe that menstrual hygiene is vital to the empowerment and well being of adolescent girls and Young mothers. Menstruation has not stopped for the pandemic. Many of the girls have been adversely affected and this is why with your support we are reaching these young women and girls from vulnerable households to fight period poverty through issuance of mrnstrual kits that consist of sanitary towels, soap, face mask and panties. Continue supporting us to reach more girls and young women.
