FIGHTING MENSTRUAL POVERTY IN KENYA
We are living in times where menstrual poverty still exist. Many women and girls cannot afford sanitary products and are using unhygienic ways to protect themselves.
Sewing Together declares to make reusable pads to best our ability to give away to girls and women who can't afford them across Kenya.
Due to the lack of adequate protection, young girls during menstruation are often forced to use leaves, feathers, or even sand.
Many young women even stop going to school.
It creates gaps in education, and often leads to expulsion.
Sewing Together reached out to Polish fashion houses seeking for help.
From their offcuts - we make pads !
All in a spirit of sustainable - zero waste fashion.
However, to make a pad we still need material like bamboo towel (350 KSH / 1m ) , press studs ( 15KS each ) , waterproof lawyer ( 200 KSH / 1m ), which costs a lot of money in Kenya.
Please help up by making a small donation.
Every Cent, Shilling counts !
Asante Sana !
