Alumni Group: Mentoring & Sanitary Pads Project

Paranae student giving vote of thanks_0Our Alumni Group is a coalition of MGEF alumni and current college students who are dedicated to empowering other Maasai women and girls. Their first project focuses on mentoring rural primary school girls and providing them with sanitary pads. These girls regularly miss school because they have no access to sanitary pads. This small but significant resource enables Maasai girls to attend school without interrupt.

On November 10, 2012 the Alumni Group went to their first three primary schools to serve as role models, offer support, and distribute a supply of sanitary pads to each girl (see photo).

We would like to give a very special thanks to project funders, Ruth and Bev of Australia.
