UPDATE: As many of you know we have been working with Kenyan Health Care Initiative to provide reusable personal hygiene kits for Kenyan girls so they stay in school. We are so thankful for the donations of underwear, wash clothes and money.  Many thanks to Arlene, who recently sewed 30 drawstring bags which will be a great help in getting the 500 kits to our Kenyan girls that will be delivered this spring.

What is the project?

In Kenya, families survive on $2 a day.  Just imagine most Kenyan girls and women have no access to sanitary supplies, forcing them to leave school during their periods missing up to 20% of school days each year!  These lost days put the girls behind in school, discouraged and often they drop out. Kenyan Health Care Initiative was founded by 2 health care providers in Orange, CT.  Their mission is to help to empower 11 small Ngwesi communities to build clinics, access clean water, supply books for schools and promote hygiene education. They personally deliver sustainable feminine hygiene kits, raise awareness and are helping to create a micro-business in Ngwesi so that women can make these kits for sale in their own communities.
