More Girls Missing School Due To Lack Of Sanitary Pads


ASJ-31-sanitary-padsGirls in Kenya’s government schools spend 25 hours a week out of school due to inadequate sanitary towels at their disposals. This is according to the Procter&Gamble and Kenya Women Parliamentary Association KEWOPA.

Addressing the media the KEWOPA chairperson Cecily Mbarire says many schools do not have enough funds to cater for girl child hygiene in schools.

Meanwhile the committee in partnership with P&G is expected to move in each and every county to donate sanitary towels as well as carry out reproductive education.
