Alumni Group: Mentoring & Sanitary Pads Project, Part II

Did you know that rural Maasai girls miss up to 1/4 of the school year due to their menstrual periods? Without the funds or access to sanitary pads, girls stay home every month and fall behind in their classes. Our Alumni Group is addressing this education barrier by distributing sanitary pads to the most vulnerable Maasai girls. On November 19th, for example, the MGEF Alumni Group delivered sanitary pads to students at Iseuri Primary School in Kajiado, Kenya (see photo). This is the fourth school in Kenya to receive sanitary pads and mentoring from the MGEF Alumni Group.
