HELP NEEDY SCHOOL GIRLS WITH DISABILITY WITH SANITARY PADS
Organized by: FRIDA KERRY
Our school Njuri primary school is a mixed school incorporating both normal learners and learners with disability. Our main challenge as teachers is that most of learners with disability come from poor,uneducated and without enough money to buy small things like sanitary pads or even underwear for the girls. As teacher we are forced to share our own pads with girls with disability since majority of them even cannot know when the periods are on the way. These girls are sometimes the laughing stoke in the class when this stage comes. One can figure out the whole lot of boys laughing at a disabled girl who even do not comprehend what is happening. However, every one can see the big picture of totally crippled girl on her periods and the challenges that innocent child goes through.In most cases parents of girls with disability make them abstain from classes till the mess is over and thus missing most lessons. As female teachers ,we decided to request for support so that we can be buying sanitary pads and nice secure pants for our girls of age with disability. The school will purchase these pads and keep them in school to be distributed to our girls when things start getting out of hard. Please help us with anything you can to keep our girls in classes.
