About the project

The Challenge

Most of the girls came from poor backgrounds where parents were unable to provide school items let alone sanitary towels. This forced them to skip classes and eventually drop out of school due to the shame of soiling themselves.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation’s Ndoto Zetu initiative supported the schools with sanitary towels at a cost of KES 100,000.

The Impact

Parents have been spared the burden of purchasing sanitary towels for the girls. Provision of these items to schools has also prompted increase in school enrollment as girls are assured that they can pursue their education.
