Girl4Girl Kenya aims to provide sanitary towels & mentorship to underprivileged secondary school going girls.
Sanitary towel is an important commodity to a girl child and women at large .
Research hows that , girls from poor backgrounds cannot afford this necessity . They resort to using uncouth methods during their menses such as banana leaves, pieces of tissue, pieces of materials and mattresses etc These methods are unhygienic and may harm the health of the girl .
During their menses ,some girls do not go to school . They opt to stay at home since the uncouth methods they use is not clean hence they want to escape embarrassment from fellow students when they stain themselves or have foul smell.
They end up missing 3-4 days a month of school and on average miss 48 days in a school year. In the end some of these girls drop out of school ,engage in premarital sex exposing themselves to early pregnancies/marriages and HIV-AIDS.
