Our friends at ZanaAfrica have organized a life-changing initiative that you can participate in this holiday season!
Regardless of location, a girl’s journey into adolescence is a challenging time. And in Kenya, when she gets her period, she will likely become one of the one million girls who cannot go to school because she lacks access to sanitary pads and related health education.
A gift of just $40 to ZanaAfrica Foundation can supply four girls with a yearlong supply of pads and high-quality cotton underwear that adjusts for size as a girls body changes, along with innovative pro-girl health comics that can help girls feel body-positive and proud.
While it is something many of us take for granted (these supplies and information make an enormous difference), allowing a girl to go to school and confidently focus on her studies without fear or shame.
