Provide Hygiene Kits for Girls
Provided funding for 210 days of access to personal hygiene to girls.
Project managed by: World Youth International
Provide women and girls in Kenya with basic female hygiene necessities such as sanitary pads. In Kenya, many women and girls living in poverty cannot afford to purchase disposable pads, and so use unsanitary and unhygienic materials such as old rags, which can cause infections. Many girls will stay home from school because they are embarassed to attend school, missing a week of school every month – this can add up to 10 or more weeks a year! Many fall behind and drop out of school. You can help to improve hygiene, comfort and even education by helping girls to access basic essentials.
