The Challenge

According to Procter & Gamble statistics, 42% of Kenyan school-girls have never used sanitary towels. In Baringo County, girls used alternatives such as rags, blankets, and pieces of the mattress because they could not access sanitary towels.

 

Due to COVID-19, families could no longer afford sanitary towels because of reduced incomes as a result of job losses.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation distributed sanitary towels to 18, 000 girls and women in Mogotio, Tiaty East, Baringo North, Pokot East, Marigat and Chemolingot. The three months’ supply of sanitary towels was at a cost of KES 9.3 million.

The Impact

The sanitary towels are contributing to improved menstrual health for girls and women in the county.
