About the project

The Challenge

Some teenage girls in the school fell victim to people who offered to purchase sanitary towels in exchange of sexual favours which resulted in pregnancies. Some girls also improvised mattresses to avoid soiling themselves. Others soiled themselves which caused them embarrassment and affected their learning in class.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation through the Ndoto Zetu initiative handed over sanitary towels to 800 girls worth KES 100,000. Each girl received three dignity packs.

The Impact

The girls have been spared from the embarrassment of soiling themselves and even trading in their values for sanitary towels. They are also confident and motivated to continue with their education.
