Your donation will help girls in Asembo Village, Western Kenya: (1) go to school by providing secondary school education scholarships and (2) stay in school by providing sanitary napkins.
Globally, much attention has been given to the lack of educational opportunities for girls. In Kenya, early or forced marriage, unaffordable school fees, sexual violence, and the natural monthly occurrence of their menstrual cycle often limit girls’ educational opportunities.
In Kenya, girls miss an average of 4-9 days of school each month due to a lack of access to sanitary napkins. Girls limited access to education reinforces gender inequalities. As a result, women traditionally have limited involvement in national and community decisions even when they are directly impacted.
Your support will help girls in Asembo Village and Kisumu slums in Western Kenya have access to sanitary napkins and secondary school scholarships.
