About the project
Research by Menstrual Hygiene Day Organisation shows that school girls miss at least 13 learning days in a term as a result of their periods. Girls from the community were missing school during their periods because they could not afford sanitary towels. This had disrupted their education.
Safaricom Foundation, through the Ndoto Zetu initiative, donated sanitary towels worth KES 100, 000 to 280 girls.
The girls are consistently learning even during their periods. The sanitary towels are contributing to keeping them in school without fear or shame of being isolated by other pupils
