THE STORY:

Teens for Peace is a social enterprise that is working to blunt the effects of bullying while enhancing learning opportunity for girls in Kenya. About 10 to 20 female students drop out of school every year mainly because their male classmates are bullying them when they are on their periods, menstruation bullying. So far, teens for Peace Project has provident 50 chairs as one-year re-usable sanitary pads to students in Nyabondo Day Primary School in Kenya. Our social enterprise is seeking to provide each mixed primary school with 100 plastic chairs that their students can use in classroom during weekdays and rent them out to events during weekends so that they can raise money to provide one-year sanitary pads for their students. The market rental price for a plastic chair in the village is 20 Kenya Shillings (KES). Each one-year reusable sanitary pad costs KES 400 (or USD$ 4). Even if each school lowers its plastic chair rental price to KES 5, which is KES 15 ($0.15) below the average market price, it should only rent all its 100 plastic chairs 25 times, receiving KES 12, 500/year ($125), which is enough to comfortably buy sanitary pads for all its students. That is, it will be able to buy one-year reusable sanitary for about 31 girls who are in the bracket age of menstruation. However, this is just the minimum target. There are 52 weeks in a year. If each chairs 2 days a week - Saturday and Sunday- in a week- we would have plastic chairs 104 times a year. Each day the school will receive KES 500/week (100 chairs times KES 5). Therefore, each school can generate a maximum income of KES 52,000($520). Since each school needs only KES12, 500/year, we will use retained earnings to scale the project and invest in other social programs that minimize menstrual bullying and promote learning opportunities.
