School Girl, Bomet County

Kenyan girls believe that menstruation is the most significant barrier to their schooling.

 

Many are not aware of menstruation when they get their first period, and shame, embarrassment and stigmas keep girls away from school one week out of every four.

 

We’re changing that through shedding the stigmas and giving girls the confidence they need to unlock their potential and thrive.

#SupportYourSisters through helping us achieve our goals of educating an entire generation in Bomet County about their periods. 

We #ShedtheStigma through providing facts and support to girls and boys about menstruation in a safe and dignified way without embarassment.

We shed the stigmas surrounding menstruation in 4 simple ways.

Become a regular giver

Your support will create ripples of change...

We call it the ripple effect. Your contribution is the first drop - the ripples it creates change everything...

 

Health

Poor menstrual health management can cause irritation and/or discomfort when menstruating. We know that by educating girls about their bodies and what to expect when menstruating, they can be better prepared to manage their periods correctly and stay healthy.

 

Education   

A girl misses 4 school days every month due to poor menstrual management. Your contribution will help to provide menstruation education, access to clean water and female-friendly latrines. All of this will keep girls in school so that they can keep learning and realise their full potential.

 

Empowerment for women

Where we work menstruation is a taboo topic. Feelings of shame can scar the psyche and confidence of young girls at a crucial time in their lives. By educating girls and boys on menstruation, we are breaking down the taboos which restrict girls and women and instead, creating an environment where they feel empowered.

 

Economy

We know that for every year a girl stays in education in Kenya, she will earn between 10% and 25% more in her lifetime. By unlocking the potential of young girls, they will be able to earn more in the future and lift themselves, and their families out of poverty. 


Dignity 

Periods are natural. They should not be a shameful or lonely experience. By providing education to girls and boys we are creating a safe environment that promotes dignity and brings happiness.
