Save an African girl initiative
65% of Kenyan girls living in slums and marginalized areas are at risk of contracting HIV AIDS, early pregnancy, early marriage and dropping out of school simply because they are forced into having sex with older men to buy the much needed sanitary pads each month.
Without access to sanitary pads and MRHE education, Kenyan girls are at risk of joining the 60% who drop out of school each year. Most of these gilrs are out of school for upto 1 week every month during their mestrual cycle, most of them never return as a result of early marriage, pregnancy and other related issues.
lack of these sanitary pads has been directly linked to high-risk sexual activity which only further entrenches negative gender norms. In fact, 10% of all transactional sex among adolescent girls in Kenya is for sanitary pads, where gilrs as young as 13 have sex with older men in exchange of sanitary pads. this is not good , this is not right.
At SAVE AN AFRICAN GIRL INITIATIVE wee purpose to reach out to these girls, provide them with the sanitary pads each month and help keep them in school. So that they can achieve their full potential and build a life better than the current one.
It cost only $5 to give sanitary pads to one girl every month. Please donate any amount and lets help these African princeses. If we do not save these girls no one will.
