girls sanitary towels fundraising

Closed

What's it about?

!
Studies have shown that many girls in mashujaa miss up to a week of school every month during menstruation due to lack of sanitary towels. Ask any teacher and they will tell you, a girl without access to sanitary towels feels embarrassed, unhygienic and uncomfortable, she also loses self esteem and with that the confidence to interact with her classmates, or with teachers in the classroom.

Sanitary towels, therefore, are a serious education issue in Kenya.

A girl absent from school for four days in 28 days (a month) loses 13 learning days equivalent to two weeks of learning in every school term. In an academic year (nine months) a girl loses 39 learning days equivalent to six weeks of learning time. A girl in primary school between grades 6 and 8 (three years) loses 18 learning weeks out of 108 weeks. Within the four years of high school a girl can lose 156 learning days equivalent to almost 24 weeks out of 144 weeks of learning in High school
