PERIODS OF DIGNITY INITIATIVE (PODI)

Update posted by Elseba Adhiambo On Dec 09, 2018

Dollar by dollar we will be able to greatly impact on the lives of these precious girls.


Your contribution has enabled us to:-


1. Protect the young girls against the sex predators who use the sanitary towels as baits to lure the girls into giving in to their sexual advances and exploitation.


2. Reduced risk of contracting HIV and AIDS. The sexual and reproductive health sessions that we have with the girls have made them aware of the dangers posed by engaging in unprotected sex and they have also learnt how to say NO to the sex predators. This has made them less at risk of being infected with HIV and other STIs


3. Their Dignity, Self-esteem and self-worth has greatly been enhanced and improved. They are no longer an object of ridicule during their menses as the sanitary pads provided have effectively concealed it. The boys can no longer know when aunty flow visits.


4. Renewed hopes of completing primary school and transiting to secondary school. This means a bright future ahead for those who will be able to complete secondary and join some college.


5. The girls are no longer at risk of getting impregnated at an early age.

Geographic location is a factor that leads to the spread of HIV in Kenya. with 65% of all new infections occur in nine out of the country’s 47 counties – mainly on the west coast of Kenya. In particular, new HIV infections in major cities Nairobi and Mombasa increased by more than 50% (from a collective total of 4,707 in 2013 to 7,145 in 2018). As a result, HIV prevalence ranges from from 0.1% in Wajir to 25.4%in Homa Bay.

With prevalence rate of 25.4% there is need to protect the girls and young people from contracting the virus.

Lack of something as simple as Sanitary pads may force a girl to offer her body so as to get it. She won't be able to negotiate safe sex, this predispose her to a greater risk of contracting HIV and AIDS or even teen pregnancy. These may spell doom to he future prospects.

This isn't a need we all think about because we are all blessed. But because eve you me it is a real need that may spell doom to he liife of somebody if not met. This is a compelling reason as to why your donation to this cause is very vital.

We appreciate all the effort you are putting in place to help PODI aquire and distribute sanitary pads to the girls that need them most.

We are now at 30% we are almost there. Kindly donate, in vote friends and share.

God bless you
