This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by October 26th 2018 at 4:35pm

In Turkana, Kenya, girls as young as 14 are selling themselves to afford sanitary pads. 

One school i visited had only 3 of the 74 girls who started school actually finish, as once they hit puberty they are either sold for marriage or drop out of school facing shame and fear of their periods as they have no means of sanitary solutions 

This campaign will not only launch a new charity aimed at tackling this taboo, but also provide the following for our project school girls ;

  • Sanitary Pads 
  • Pants ( without pants the pads are useless ) 
  • Soap ( without soap to wash the pants, the pads are useless... )

We are working closely with the community who are helping make bands to raise awareness and generate funds, and have teamed with Runners Heal who will be making an exclusive T-Shirt to help boost the project. 

Its time for a change, period. Are you joining us ?
