Most of the young girls have no feminine hygiene products to use once their monthly cycles begin. These young girls use cloth or rags or nothing during this time. The girls stay isolated and unable to go to school for 1-2 weeks per month. They miss out on so much school during the year they often simply stop going which condemns them to never getting an education and having any chance to improve their lives.
The girls have no money to purchase and even if they did there are no stores from which to buy them. A couple of Kenyan companies have made a washable and reusable pad the girls can use. Some simple instructions on how to use them and wash them will enable the girls to stay in school for the entire term.
No longer isolated and no longer absent from school these girls can complete their education and have a much better chance of getting a job that moves them to a much more self-sustaining position in life. We want to include these reusable feminine hygiene products in the girl’s backpacks.
