Hello, I am John Ltailen Letore.
Songa, Leyai and Lpus primary schools are rural schools in marsabit county. The schools are heavily populated with pastoralist children who have few alternatives in schooling life. The girls coming from poor families living on less than a dollar a day have huge challenges to share. As they struggle to build future for themselves and their families, limitation of resources acts as a barrier.
Looking at one of the issues which has become an embarrassment not to themselves alone but to the entire village is the suffering the girls and young women go through. A large number of girls, many from impoverished families, often choose to stay at home during their monthly periods because they cannot afford disposable sanitary pads. This negatively impacts gender equality in terms of education, employment, and other areas of opportunity for girls and women.
If one tank of 10,000 litres capacity is supplied to these schools and girls supported with reusable pads, I believe the pastoralist girls will have a story to tell the next generation.
I support the cause.

People are excluded from quality health care coverage and they are water starved. Schools are toilet-less. As a result girls drop out of school when they start menstruating. This is so unfair –– lack of water and toilets, medical services, and just being born a girl, are enough to lock families in poverty for generations.
We change this in villages and school that you care about –– see details
