THE STORY:

Pastor Dennis O. Wandera, from Kenya, runs a one-man effort to empower the impoverished girls in Kenya. With three daughters of his own, he has personally come to understand the burdens of menstruation for girls/women emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Pastor Wandera reports that the girls are stigmatized as "dirty" in traditional cultures, like in Kenya. Additionally, he worries for the girls he tries to educate due to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is widely practiced in the local Maasai and Turkana communities. Wandera says that the girls "bleed a lot and some girls even die!" With limited options he sees thousands of Kenyan girls being "forced in early marriages because of the cultural taboos of the Maasai and Turkana people," that believe that after Female Circumcision, girls are "mature and ready for marriage." Yet, if given the opportunity to attend school even while menstruating, a girl can end the cycle of poverty in one generation. United Pentecostal Church of Kenya: Apostolic Centre P.O.
