girls sanitary towels fundraising

Closed

What's it about?


The enrolment ledgers at mashujaa tell a story. Among young students, the ratio of boys to girls is nearly equal, but as age increases girl enrolment decreases.
We know many of the reasons for this: pregnancy, early marriages, poverty — even the lack of “girls-only” latrines. Eventually girls fall behind academically and often drop out.
Teachers need to be people girls can look up to for guidance and mentoring. We ask non-governmental organisations to make the distribution of reusable sanitary pads a component of future interventions. Single-use sanitary towels are not sustainable in most settings.
