Protect and Educate a girl child
Organized by: Kuvuna Juma
Although girls and women find resourceful ways to improvise sanitary pads, some of the materials they use offer limited absorbency, making it challenging for girls to participate in school. As a result, millions of girls worldwide either skip school during menstruation or drop out entirely because of a lack of hygiene solutions even though their education is crucial to their success and that of their communities. Girls who complete primary school are less likely to get HIV or become pregnant when they are young, and more likely to have fewer children, earn higher wages, and educate their own children. Sitiri, Elimisha Banati is a programme developed and achieved from our research with an aim of taking care of a girl Teenager. The programme was developed due to study done at the grassroots and found that quit a number of female students especially at primary Level do not attend classes due to lack of sanitary towels, hence causing the child to miss class at least five days a Month.
