Success Stories

October 2015

11th October. Support Girl Child Organization had the privilege of partnering with Generation Guiders to mark the International Day of the Girl Child 2015 with Girls Football Tournament.

August 2015

We are delighted to once again be able to support Bridgit Nzioka a student at Ititu Secondary School in Makueni with 10,000 Kenya shillings towards her school fees.

It has been a long journey and struggle since the early years when she was a student at Kinyau Primary School.

September 2013

We kick off our Makueni sanitary towel project campaign with Kinyau Primary school in Makueni. As usual the students were excited and very grateful for the support we have given them through the year. This has boosted their morale and helped them concentrate more on their studies

 

 

“The days of using old dirty blankets and rags are gone. With a year’s supply of sanitary towels learning is more fun and there is no excuse to skip classes, sky is the limit....”

 

 

 


“As a teacher I am motivated by your efforts and the girls are now more determined than ever to learn”

 
April 2013

In our quest to empower women and girls in poverty stricken areas in rural arid and semi-arid areas in East Africa and improving their daily lives this time round on our campaign to keep the girl child in school, we visited 5 schools on the 10th and 11th of April 2013 namely;


Kandawa Primary School -Kirinyaga
Lower Baricho Primary School-Kirinyaga
Ndudune Primary School-Makueni
Kinyau Primary School-Makueni
Thwake Primary School-Makueni

This time round we did not just issue sanitary towels, we managed to successfully launch our new hamper bag to the girls consisting of;

x2 8 pack sanitary towels
x3 pairs of underwear
Soap to wash
Petroleum jelly
Sex education brochure

of the five schools we visited two of them namely Kinyau Primary and Thwake Primary were re-visits. Speaking to the teachers since our last visit the girls attendance in class had significantly improved and the girls exhumed more confidence and generally the morale was high.

Some of the key things we noted on the campaign is that food is a key challenge to some. A good example is Kandawa Primary School which was established for homeless displaced people of Mwea. The children here dint have desks and chairs to seat on nor did the classes have doors or windows. This was very saddening to see however, the children were determined to study and soldier on despite the many challenges they faced. We hope in our next visit we will do more than provide sanitary towels but desks and chairs also.

This year we have an ambitious goal of reaching out to seven thousand girls in different counties, however the success of this project depends on generous donors like you, and the funding must be in place to go forward. Each donation will change the life of a child for the better.


January 2013


On the 24/1/2013 the Support Girlchild Organization staff had the privilage of restoring the dignity to girls by providing sanitary towels to Kinyau Primary School and Thwake primary School in Eastern Province, Makueni County,Mbooni East District Kalawa Division, Katangini Location, Thwake Sub Location.

The joy on the girls faces was so overwhelming and yes the confidence and dignity emerged as we interacted. The teachers too were very greatful for we were in a way making their work easier because class attendance will be consistence.

It is our endevour to continue assisting the girls and hoping to not only provide them with sanitary towels but provide full scholarship to those who excel and come from a humble background.

We will be paying them another visit in April as we check the progress.
