On 21st August we spent the day at Kiandutu Health Centre in Thika.
LVCT has an initiative for girls called DREAMS. We were invited to partner with them to give dream girls from Kiandutu sanitary towels.
Girls miss out on school, opportunities and use whatever is available to them during their periods. By giving access to sanitary towels, we avoid them being comprised and find themselves engaging in sex and getting at the risk of teen pregnancies, STIs or even HIV.
In giving them pads, you’re also ensuring they won’t be targeted for defilement
