About the project
Some girls were ashamed to go school during their menstrual cycle as they were forced to use blankets and cotton wool to avoid soiling themselves. This affected their self-esteem and school performance.
Safaricom Foundation through the Ndoto Zetu initiative supported girls across 23 schools with sanitary towels worth KES 100,000.
The girls’ dignity has been restored and they are confidently attending all their classes even during their menstrual cycle. They are no longer limited to working towards achieving their dreams.
