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.

Anyone who has had a period knows what it is like to realize you have used your last pad. Now imagine that feeling multiplied by every day of every period for the foreseeable future. This is the reality of millions of girls with periods face because they do not have access or cannot afford sanitary towels. With your support we are reaching these girls from poor backgrounds in Nyeri county. Your support is changing their live positively. Thank you always.
