THE SANITARY PADS DRIVE
When news broke that girls were having sex in exchange for pads, while others were using maize cobs as tampons and some living out their period days in the farms, out in the cold- we at manenoz decided to act. We launched Project Octob-her, because her wellbeing is society’s wellbeing. Sanitary Pads are an essential commodity alongside medical care, food and clothing. Over the years, the campaigns to make them free for all, through legislation have often hit a brick wall, yet unnecessary recreational utilities such as condoms and newspapers are handed out free of charge everywhere.
At Manenoz, we have decided to do our small bit and help as many needy girls as we can with a yearlong supply of sanitary pads. In conjuction with PseudoAfrika and a few resource persons, we have been collecting funds to achieve this fete. Our aim being five hundred packets of sanitary pads to support thirty needy girls in Isinya Sub-county, Kajiado.
But it doesn’t stop there. We need your help to touch as many lives as we possibly can. That’s why we are calling upon you to adopt one girl and support her with a yearlong supply of pads for 750 bob only. You can also contribute any other amount to the kitty and join in fellow friends of manenoz. The funds can be forwarded via M-Pesa to our team Leader Mark Saruni on his number 0702328682. All contributions should be followed up by a whatsapp text, sms or a call. Your support will be highly appreciated.
As Sauti Sol puts it, Every girl deserves to feel like a star, and you can help turn things around for one girl.
