Together, we can empower every girl to manage their menstruation safely and without shame. Based on our Menstrual hygiene report 33% of girls from Karare who have started their period use disposable sanitary pads; they are willing to use reusable sanitary pads. The parents contribute by providing the disposable sanitary pads which are available in the shops.

Research on menstrual health in Kenya shows that approximately 65% of Kenyan girls cannot afford sanitary pads on monthly basis due to high cost of disposable pads. The majority of girls who have not started their period are willing to use reusable pads.
