There has been interesting buzz over the Citizen TV feature from last evenings news. If you didn’t see it, fret not you can watch it here basically was “Shock as Kenyan School girls use feathers as sanitary towels”
This was based on girls in West Pokot, a very marginalised locality moving towards the North West part of Kenya. The issue of girls lacking sanitary towels in Kenya is not new. Whats new is that more people now know and more people can now take action. Its not enough to be all shocked and talk and talk about it if you as an individual are doing nothing about it. Girls need sanitary towels, many cannot afford them and that is the reality.
Solutions to problems Kenyan face lies with Kenyans – not donors, not the IMF, not the World Bank. A packet of sanitary towels costs 40sh that’s about ($0.50) so do something. If you want to do something but don’t know what to do, drop a line.
Love to all! #girlsmatter
