Let's End Period Poverty!

Girls (at the educational seminar) were saying, now they will not miss school days when they are having their period.

– Stanley Gitari, Program Lead

Stanley & Mary Gitari in Maua have provided a workroom and supervision for making reusable sanitary supplies for young women; Center donors provided the sewing machine and materials. Stella, an AIDS orphan (pictured left), has been hired to sew the supplies. 

Center Board member, Clietta Terry, reports that "Young women and their mothers are invited to daylong seminars. In addition to receiving menstrual supplies, they are provided training on hygiene and self-care." To combat traditions of involuntary female genital mutilation, the day ends with an alternative Rite of Passage celebration.  To combat the evils of period poverty in Kenya, India, and elsewhere, additional funds are needed. Thanks for contributing!
