Naretisho Girls' Project
According to UNESCO at least 1 in 10 girls in sub-Saharan Africa miss school during their period. We have started an innovative project in Bulati to provide eligible girls with menstrual education, mentoring and sanitary packs containing underwear and reusable sanitary pads.
We would like to thank the charity freedom4girls UK for their partnership in providing sanitary bags and the menstrual educational materials.
Two local teachers have agreed to be involved in the project and will hold two workshops/mentoring sessions each month.
The initial group members selected the name Naretisho, which means "reaching out to help" as they wish to be empowered to help other girls in their community.
The running cost for this project is £40 or 6,000 Kenyan Shillings a month. If you would like to support this important work, please donate here.
