Many girls stay out of school every year for fear of being stigmatized because of “accidents” during their periods. Sanitary towels are expensive and thus out of reach for many girls and women in Africa.
A group of youth from St. Louis (YU2I) are raising funds to buy sanitary pads for girls from poor families in Kenya. So far they have raised over $300 and hope to hit $5000 target by the end of March. Visit their website www.yu2i.com to support this great initiative. Your $20 buys 240 sanitary towel
