Great Kathleen, your offer will be of great help to my girls, I live and work in Kibera, the biggest slum settlement in subsaharan Africa. Our girls still miss school during their woman days due to lack of sanitary towels. We work to empower girls to manage their lives positively.

We will be happy to hear from you.

Sanitary Napkins request

Thank you for this noble idea. It will go a long way helping the girl child to stand tall and feel confident all the month round. Riruta United Women Empowerment Programme (RUWEPO) runs Children of Africa Hope Mission School in the slums of Riruta Nairobi and we will appreciate if you considered us in this noble project.

The school carters for 159 orphans and vulnerable children. Of these 80 are girls. And out of 80, 26 are in need of these napkins for they have started experiencing monthly periods.They do miss school during this time because they lack this essential need-Sanitary napkins.

Please do factor our school in this program.

Thank you

This is the #1 reason for absenteeism for girls in Zimbabwe - the absence of sanitary napkins. A nonprofit I co-chair could put these to good use immediately in western Zimbabwe.

Bravo To An Awesome Idea

Hello there Kathleen and bless your heart for this very noble idea. I applaud you.I have a global not for profit organization established in New York with a mission of helping girls around the world especially underserved communities with self-esteem and empowerment related issues.

Statistics clearly shows that an average African school going girl skips school 3-5 times a month because of the lack of sani pads .And what happens as a result is low grade and low self-esteem.As part of our program we have been helping and need more help.We work with girls in Zimbabwe,Ghana and Cameroon at the moment.
It will go a long way to help the girl child to improve class grade,school attendance ,a maintain healthy self-esteem , stand tall and feel confident all the month and year round.
You can link with us at

Hope to connect with you soon.

Thanks again.
Yours truly,
