No Pads, No School Initiative

Thousands of Kenyan girls miss school every month while others drop out due to lack of basic sanitation. The Machao Orphanage Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization, is fighting to reverse the tide with free, sanitary napkins.

Mission:
Over the past decade or so, it has become increasingly evident that one of the reasons African girls drop out of school is due to the lack of sanitary pads for menstruation. In countries where getting food on the table is the highest priority, sanitary pads become a luxury. Without hygiene supplies, girls stop going to school during their period and eventually fall behind and drop out. Although the girls of Machao have no intention of dropping out, they become embarrassed without proper protection for their period. Their dignity is important to us, and we want to reach out to you for help. Consider starting a collection drive for sanitary napkins or raising money to purchase sanitary kits. Our No Pads, No School initiative needs your help.

Supporting Schools:

What We Need:
Individuals to collect boxes of sanitary napkins or to raise funds for us to purchase sanitary hygiene kit from Huru International.
