In January, 2021, 134 girls at Mwihoko School in Kenya received Save a Girl sanitary kits from TGUP. The washable, reusable sanitary supplies will enable the girls to stay in school for at least another 3 years.
The girls were very excited to receive their kits as up until now they would never have dreamed that they would be able to stay in school and complete their education! Each kit contains 8 absorbent pads, 2 waterproof panty shields, a large bar of soap, and a waterproof bag for used pads, all in an attractive carrying bag.
The kits cost $6 each (about the cost of a latte) and are given free to the girls, for whom they are life changing.
Veronica (on the left) teaches Ubuntu’s Director, Lillian, about the kits and how to give the educational component. Philip, who heads Kiini, presented Lillian with a TGUP flip chart to use when giving the training at future distributions.
Here is a video of the girls expressing their thanks.
Thank you to Kiini, Ubuntu, and the Sumar Lakhani Foundation who funded the kits. You are changing the educational trajectory of all of the girls who received kits!
